'Stupid Orchestra', A Symphony of Household Appliances: Music or Monstrosity?

Ok this is so awesome -- German composer Michael Petermann spent the last 8 yeas turning a bunch of vintage appliances into a functional orchestra. To me it's totally music, but other people might disagree. Either way, it took a lot of hard work and techno-coordination!
Blödes Orchester [is] the ultimate intersection of design, technology, and the arts. Translated as “Stupid Orchestra” as a result of the “musicians” limited capabilities, the Blödes Orchester features classic household design appliances made between 1912 and 1975 as the players. Some notes in the symphony were played by the Braun Aromaster, a coal-fueled Miele washing machine from 1955, Braun Sixtant razors from three different decades, and Goertz’s Starmix mixers, all of which Petermann purchased at flea markets or on eBay.
