Be Blown Away

Ok, this just has to be seen & heard to be believed!

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 machine’s components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation
Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa . Yes, farm equipment!

It took the team a
combined 13,029 hours (6.26 years) 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.
