30 Days of Weird Instruments, Day 28 -- the Singing, Ringing Tree

We're heading to the town of Burnley in Lancashire, England to visit today's weird instrument.

The Singing, Ringing Tree is a wind powered sound sculpture made of galvanized steel pipes that harness the wind to create music. The three meter high structure was part of a Panopticons arts and regeneration project, a series of twenty-first century landmarks symbolizing the renaissance of of the East Lancashire area.

It looks like something an alien race might have left behind, and sounds fascinating, haunting, and eerie all at once.

Monday's instrument is two instruments smashed into one.
