The Anarchestra is set up as an interactive art installation that the public gets to play. It can be tuned all to the same key making it hard to hit the wrong notes. You don't have to be a good musician to play it. /> />

Playing For Change
I wish more people had access to unusual instruments! I wonder what children growing up with these instruments would make as adults.. so cool!
John Malkovich spends his free time making fart noises, cool
Dylan James Vight
One man's junk is another man's instrument.
sine moderamine
I bet this guy's neighbors just looove him...
I really like that Dron.
Joe Bloe
you have to smoke some pretty serious weed to make something like this I bet
Arman Hatamkhani
oh please this takes hipster to a new dimension
William Stephens
Tom Waits needs to go to this guy's shop and make an album.
I think Tim Burton just found his music composer
Anirban Maitra
Most of the sounds produced are creepy. Can be used in the background of a horror movie
Vanilla Titties
pretty sure this dude did a lot of drugs in the 70s
Nathan R.
this man is a genius. I personally love his creativity, he could even make a small fortune if he decides to sell them to the right people. But Oh My God his Dron sounded awesome!!!
Gareth Alford
Sound very like fallout wasteland band feel to it
Some of these sounds reminded me of post apocalyptic video game soundtracks.
These are awesome. It's so amazing to think about how different we all are from each other and what we each are capable of with our different styles of creativity. There's a ton of undiscovered, beautiful talent among us.
If Frank Zappa was still alive he would immediatly invite this guy to come over and invent some things for him or he would go to the guy's workplace to start recording for a new album.
because traditional instruments are too mainstream
Voice Of Reason
sounds like post apocalyptic tribal instruments to me
peter veillon Mr. V
I like his reason for creating these works of art. way to think out of the box
Some Dude
Good job these are made from scratch it's obvious this man is smart
christopher rojo
These instruments are like the type of ideas we have while we're stoned but never follow thru with... It appears he's committed.
Devin Attia
get a team of musicians to work with all these instruments and u could probably create some of the greatest effects and emotional tones for movies, games, or anything
Angel Irizarry
so this is how they make the soundtracks for the zelda games
So this is how it feels being John Malkovich....
Daniel Redman
2:45 my right ear had an orgasm
ralph van tilburg
great for horror/psychedelic or culture movies/sounds/music...
Sounds like a Primus song
imagine being on acid in there
If I was a 60's or 70's pothead, I'd be saying far out man, that's groovy. But I'm not.
Randy Butternubs
Terrible narrator. Why'd you put on a weird fake accent for the last part?
Martin Rioux
This man should work on the next madmax movie.
Gojifan54 Gaming
I'm a drummer and I like the "Dirty old hary"
Alan Angel
Sounds like something Tom Waits would talk over.
My favourite is the dron
Nire D.
the lead singer of tool needs to visit and work with this man.
matt krischke
tom waits should record an album here
Szimipek 02
These sound like the ost for machinarium or samorost
Odek Thurios
John Malkovich's long lost brother?
Luke Weller
more noise makers than musical instruments
Stephen McAllister
I'll take the DJ Farttables for $2,000
The dude who made the instruments looks like my grandpa XP
Ante Tomas

Igor Ray
This Music for Mad Max: Fury Road
Amazing for ''experimental'' music producers :D
Corey Kleppinger

He's probably a hippie
No Neck
Finally...... the answer to Tom Waits question.... " What's he building in there?"

Abner Anaya
Konami should contact this man for the soundtrack of their next Silent Hill.

Fire Tom

joao sturza

Mike G
its like a medieval torture tools.lmao
What song was he playing on the one that sounded like a sitar at 2:03 ? I know ive heard that melody somewhere.
Ryan Alexander Bloom
Some of these are cool, others just bad homemade versions of instruments that already exist only the real ones work better. For example, he made his own vibraphone. It has exactly the features of a vibraphone and is played the same way, but sounds dead because he isn't good at making vibes.
as a music producer this would be heaven when coming up with a sound/drum kit!
Colin Heeregrave
I think the red hot chili peppers would have an awesome time with this guy and his instruments
Mauro Sixtos
I feel like this is how music in a far away alien civilization sounds.
4:24 you old goat you, no you did not just play the theme to the twilight zone.
Casey Vander
Some of these sound like something you'd hear in an old 60's Sci-Fi movie
John Malkovich Plays Tom Waits Songs?!

Stevie Ruhle
Alot of these instruments sound like they could make a Zelda temple theme lol
Tuomas Palonen
Awesome instruments and music! But there is one thing that puzzles me. The video here states that the man behind all these instruments is Andy Thurlow. Yet, Anarchestra's own website ( says that "Anarchestra is an orchestra of over two hundred unique musical instruments built (with a few exceptions) by Alex Ferris." Tried to Google for more information, but couldn't find much. Why these conflicting names and credits? Can anybody shed some light on this?
Mac Pakinga
steam punk mean as bro . :-)
2:07 That's actually how a sitar basically works.
The jam session part sounded a lot like something from Zelda :D
paul chemaly
