Our friends at Great Big Story recently created this great profile video of musician/artist/luthier Ken Butler, a Brooklyn man who make incredible homemade musical instruments from found street trash and discarded junk.
Ken Butler is a Brooklyn-based artist and musician who has built over 400 musical instruments. But these aren't just any custom-built instruments. Butler builds his pieces from discarded items he finds on the streets of New York City. Hockey sticks, tennis rackets, brooms, golf clubs, pieces of furniture, styrofoam, toothbrushes: all are fair game for his masterpieces. It's musique concrète... jungle.
