30 Days of Weird Instruments, DAY 12 -- the Anarchestra

Anarchestra is a collection of about 100 interactive musical instruments designed to be playable by musicians and non-musicians alike. The name combines the words anarchy and orchestra to describe a musical experience without definitive rules. describes their purpose as to "encourage non-musicians to explore the making of sound, to allow experienced musicians to make sound unconstricted (sic) by their technical habits and preconceptions, and to provide an alternative vocabulary of musical sounds."

According to the video below, it is also set up as an interactive art exhibit the public is allowed to play.

The majority of the instruments are designed by Alex Ferris with steel and select custom parts for mouth pieces and to control pitch.

Tomorrow's instrument is sick of people calling it a typewriter.
