The Frankenhorn Collection

In “The Frankenhorn Collection” a new 8 part series starting this Sunday morning, Phil Whelan takes a look at the musical equivalent of those bizarre, nightmarish creatures that live miles below anything else in the world’s oceans. The ones that often come adorned with barbs, fangs, electrical bits, and a ton of useless lumps and bumps that to this day leave scientists perplexed. We’ll find out about, and listen to, some of the weirdest musical instruments ever conceived, many of which for very good reason, did not make it to the production stage. There isn’t a lot that musicians and instrument makers haven’t tried throughout the ages, sometimes with little thought to the finished result. Some survived…some (thankfully) didn't. Take for example, an already strange instrument, the Theremin, which is played by waving your hand in the air. Stick it inside a dead honey badger, and you've got …The Badgermin! There's also the "Cat Piano", the idea for which dates back to the 1500s. As the player hits the keys, a nail sticks into various cats' tails, causing the desired screech. Thankfully there's NO record of it ever actually being built.

Join Phil on Sunday Mornings at 8.30.
