Transformed vintage piano into unique analog ensemble of twenty instruments

What is this unusual analogue combination of twenty instruments? Occasionally, a remarkable technical achievement arises that brilliantly reimagines an instrument. In this case, talented musicians have breathed new life into a nearly century-old grand piano, as shown in the video below.

Twenty additional instruments have been integrated into the grand piano, all playable using the piano keys. This fascinating creation is the work of Brunettes Shoot Blondes, a Ukrainian band known for their indie rock music. Formed in early 2010 in Kiev, Ukraine, the band is featured in the video playing their original song “Houston.”

Brunettes Shoot Blondes gained widespread fame with the animated music video for their 2014 hit “Knock Knock,” which went viral in September. Their innovative music video has garnered over 26 million views on YouTube. You can watch it in the video below.
