This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between
 the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and... Amazingly, 97% of the machines components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft Iowa.     Yes, farm equipment!

 It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment,
 calibration, and tuning before filming this video, but as you can see it was WELL worth the effort.

 It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the
 University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.

Don't know where it came from.  I received it in an email so put it on my site for all to enjoy.

but are you sure it's not computer generated???

sounds like Blue Men and looks a lot like CG to me.
but then again... I'm a newbie.

first official post,
