The Fish Organ

The Fish Organ is a electronic keyboard instrument made from a box that used to contain smoked fish.

The keyboard is copper tape cut to shape. It’s tuned (approximately) to the twelve tone Just scale based on 2’s, 3’s, and 5’s. When the little red plug is plugged into the “No breath” jack, the thing plays at full volume without the breath controller.
