Artist Neil Mendoza. Titled Rock Band, this kinetic sound art installation is actually four different instruments including a xylophone, a buzzing base, two spinners, and a pair of slappers.

Artist Neil Mendoza’s latest creation takes the idea of a rock band rather literally, in the sense that his latest video consists of a set of instruments played by actual rocks.Mendoza’s rock band is composed of electromechanical instruments that make music with rocks by throwing them through the air, slapping them and making them vibrate.

Mendoza has used the instruments to create a rendition of the beatles’ ‘here comes the sun’—a biographical choice, describing the daily experience of a rock sitting on the ground in the sun. the project was created as part of 3D design company autodesk’s awesome artist in residence program.
