Musicworks, the magazine that brings some amazing contemporary music to its readers (every issue comes with a CD) in its upcoming summer issue will be showing readers how to make instruments out of vegetables, such as a carrot made into an ocarina, using only some kitchen tools and a drill. The magazine was inspired by the Vegetable Orchestra of Vienna which creates, composes for and performs on veggies.

The magazine is offering a package deal that includes buying the magazine, with its usual full-length CD plus the CD "Onionoise" from the Vegetable Orchestra of Vienna for $20 + shipping, only until June 15.
Here's a video preview of one of three instruments -- a carrot slide whistle -- described in the DIY section of the summer issue (we are not making this up!)
