University of Iowa Farm Machine Music
This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa. Amazingly, 97% of the machines components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft Iowa, yes farm equipment!

It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as you can see it was WELL worth the effort.

It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.

(Enjoy the video although the story behind it is a bonifide Snopes Urban Legend, this is still an awesome graphics treat! )

    They play that thing on the 'news' almost every day at our school, it drives everyone crazy. Although everyone liked it the first time, it's reprehensible the 56th time.

    Margeret I beleived the story I am so gulible. Then I went to your urban legend site and discovered it wasn't true. But it is a great piece of animation.
