Enter the plugged-in world of Tim Kaiser, a maker who creates experimental musical instruments from scavenged objects. Tim seeks out unique sounds everywhere he goes plucking chimes out of grandfather clocks and jingle mechanisms from children’s toys. And he doesn’t stop there – his electronic instruments have to look cool, too. So, Tim houses them in wildly inventive containers. Then meet the musical maverick who inspired him, Harry Partch.

    Absolutely magical. Put him together with Jake von Slatt, give them a couple hundred bucks and unlimited access to the country’s junkyards, and you’ll get a device so interesting that it will either result in world peace or world domination.
