And carrots and bell peppers and pumpkins and….
I’m here at the Indianapolis International Airport waiting for the 11 members of the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra to arrive. They perform at The Toby this Saturday night, 7 pm.
Since seeing their picture in a cooking magazine five years ago, I’ve been obsessed with bringing them to perform at IMA. I love that they take an everyday object like an eggplant and mine it for its expressive sonic properties. I love that they wear all black and let the colorful veggies create a visual pop. I love that they treat vegetables as sculptural objects. I love that their music is experimental.
Here’s a listen to their latest CD, Onionoise. I especially like Brazil.
