Rotterdam based folksinger Goslink turns trash into music. It all started out with that he found it hard to carry around all the standard equipment. So he turned a threshold into a musical instrument. Which turned out to be so easy, he created more, making banjo’s, guitars and even a drum-kit.
To create this, Goslink has used other musical instruments, but also trash he finds on the street, like pencils, cookie-jar, salad-bowl, orange boxes, mouse-traps. And this is how it all sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY_uxiIdiUQ& And here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwNelU6cfv0&NR=1 is a small documentary about his work and instruments.
