All you need to create an orchestra is a few friends, a couple of laptops, and a… coffee maker?

In this wild video, programmers Denys Sanz and Marco Domenichetti create harmony by synchronizing various electronic devices over Wi-Fi with Max For Live, ‘a visual programming environment that allows users to build instruments and effects for use within Ableton Live.’ Each ‘player’ in the orchestra, including the projection-mapped coffee maker, contribute unique sounds to the four-minute song- Aleix Tobias is in charge of the drums and Pablo Selnik plays the flute (via laptops, of course) while the coffee maker’s drip blends into the digitally programmed orchestration.
