new/strange instrument ideas Answered

I am starting a band somewhat ethereal and experimental ( think sigur ros meets nine inch nails). I like interesting instruments and strange sounds. Any ideas?

If you've got an old vinyl record player: Have the needle on the turntable but with no drive, put at least one of the speakers up close to it and crank up the volume for some interesting feedback. L

Have you tried browsing the Oddmusic Gallery for inspiration?

There are lots of odd instruments, traditional and new. Most have got mp3 files to give you an idea of the sound.

Try electric bagpipes, or "IT".

Oh! The nondo sounds like what you need, and may be easy-ish to make. Listen.
