SCRAPHEAP ORCHESTRA

The Scrapheap Orchestra was a BBC program screened in 2011.

Eight leading UK instrument makers designed and manufactured forty-four modern concert instruments for the BBC concert orchestra to perform at the prestigious 2011 Proms. The big challenge was that they all had to be made out discarded or scrap materials.
