The 'Orchestra Da Camera' creates unorthodox melodies as the randomized movement of the mice affects their versions of classic tunes.

Quiet Ensemble‘s ‘Orchestra Da Camera’ is an unorthodox orchestra as none of its members are human or directly play an instrument. Instead, all forty elements of the chamber are mice who run around on their wheels.

Each wheel is connected to a carillon, which is triggered by its movement. When a wheel turns, the carillon starts playing its musical note.

The orchestra’s sound is dependent on the number of carillons triggered and the randomized movement of the mice, creating unrecognizable versions of classic melodies. Lullabies by Brahms, Schubert and Mozart are altered by the mice. You can check out the musical installation in the video below:
