bichopalo sculpts complicated music machines using plants and other objects

music sculptor bichopalo builds complex music machines from unusual objects. the machines feature plants where possible as well as other natural elements like sticks and water. they also include small spherical elements that double as bird houses to host bichopalo’s two pet birds, pico and verdi.

bichopalo named his latest magical contraption the ‘plantyflutesizer’, which took months to create and features a sequencer that can be used to create different melodies. as can be heard on his instagram, the machines emit beautifully calming sounds.

‘still in progress, I can’t really tell how many hours, days and months I’ve spent working on this,’ he writes on his instagram. ‘the entire structure is a combination of different instruments but the main one is a sort of sequencer with 8 notes limit that can be combinated on different patterns. an electric impulse actives a motor with an arm connected that hits a sensor running a pre-recorded note.’

‘there’s a lot to speak about this but on this particular post the real rockstars are my little partners: pico and verdi. this two little fellas have been with me from a while, making me laught and giving me incredible presents every single day. it’s incredible how these little creatures can emit such an intense light. if you have pets you know what I mean. they are family, pure unconditional love, no matter what, specially these weird days of quarantine is needed more than ever.’
