The Vegetable Orchestra are from Vienna and they use musical instruments made out of vegetables: using carrot flutes, pumpkin basses, leek violins, leek-zucchini vibrators, cucumberophones and celery bongos, the orchestra creates its own extraordinary and vegetable sound universe. The ensemble overcomes preserved and marinated sound conceptions or tirelessly re-stewed listening habits, putting its focus on expanding the variety of vegetable instruments, developing novel musical ideas and exploring fresh vegetable sound gardens. The music represents an isomorphism of electronic music and the structure of the sounds produced by the vegetables. The concept of this remix project is the interpretation and reconstruction of electronic music with organic means by using the original vegetable sounds and samples. Karmarouge Records has invited well-respected international artists such as Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Gabriel Ananda, Frank Martiniq, Oliver Hacke, Märtini Brös, Anja Schneider, Basteroid and Sian to take part and create their individual vegetable sound interpretation. Armed with vegetable samples, a sequencer and a hand-held blender, it's up to them to show the world how to brew a large portion of minimal techno out of ginger, leek and onions, how to buzz the pumpkin bass and cook a delicate celery soup. Listen to the vegetables!
