A bit of trivia - it is the only instrument that is played without being touched.

Beautiful! Besides the incredible technique, the expression (dynamics, rubato, trills, vibrato, etc) exhibits an artistic control of the instrument.

Too bad he can't make any money off of his instrument making talent.  Ends up rotting or growing mold.  :D

Anyways, here is the page with all of his videos! He has a lot more vegetable instruments here!

along with some of his other instruments (sorry couldn't find pics of them) like the double-reed slide music stand, the windbreaker (which doesn't resemble a jacket), the hardart, the lasso d'amore, and the tuba mirum.

Excellent! However, I suspect it isn't too good at giving breaks to other musicians....

Personally, I liked the Hardart better (in the Concerto for Horn and Hardart, on the very first PDQ Bach recording).  I wish I could find a picture to post.

Sea Organ - musical instrument played by the sea 
The musical Sea Organ (morske orgulje) is located on the shores of Zadar, Croatia, and is the world’s first musical pipe organs that is played by the sea. Simple and elegant steps, carved in white stone, were built on the quayside. Underneath, there are 35 musically tuned tubes with whistle openings on the sidewalk. The movement of the sea pushes air through, and – depending on the size and velocity of the wave – musical chords are played. The waves create random harmonic sounds.

Sorry.  That's even written into the score for Nutcracker.  Pony girl, please come up with something REALLY unusual, like the Hardart (from Schickele's Concerto for Horn and Hardart; the joke of which is probably wasted on you).

Maybe something odd like the Glass Harmonica, shown here being played by its inventor (special quiz: identify the inventor.  Hint: you probably read a lot about him in US history)

How could I not know Ben Franklin? Also, the part in the Nutcracker is for celesta, which I posted earlier.
