Research in Vienna

Came to Vienna to research homemade musical instruments and to continue writing the show. Through a friend we met a musician Friedrich who invited us into a musicology seminar at the University of Vienna. There we met the speaker, Hans Tshiritsch, who is an inventor of musical instruments, unlike any you've seen before. He invited us back to his place to see his workshop and meet his family. His workshop is a big musical playground. His musical instruments are prestine, beautiful metal art pieces that make musical sounds. Very inspirational.

Hans in his workshop. This instrument is made from an old sewing machine.
The wheel spins and rubs a string which is played, amplified by the metal horn

Hans' workshop - a musical playland!
