Farm Animal Instruments

These Goat Bagpipes are Made Out of Taxidermy Goats

— October 28, 2010 — Unique
If you thought the "keytar" was a crazy instrument, then these Goat Bagpipes will blow your mind. Goat Bagpipes are made out of actual goats and sound exactly like a pair of bagpipes should.

Risto Todoroski is a Sydney-based musician/taxidermist responsible for these epic Goat Bagpipes. In the featured video, Todoroski actually plays one of his creations, a sight which is creepy but oddly entrancing.

Implications - It definitely wouldn't appeal to everyone, and I wouldn't recommend playing these pipes to animal rights activists. However, Risto is definitely an imaginative inventor who is breaking ground in the musical world of bagpipes.
Trend Themes
1. Animal-inspired Instruments - Artists and music professionals can explore creating unique and creative musical instruments by using previously overlooked flexibilities of farm animals.
2. Musical Taxidermy - Innovators can create new music products by fusing two unlikely industries, such as taxidermy and music, to introduce consumers to innovative musical instruments.
3. Sustainable Musical Instruments - Musicians can explore sustainable and ethical alternatives to traditional instruments by using resources that already exist, such as farm animals, that would have otherwise gone to waste.
Industry Implications
1. Music Industry - Innovative musical instruments, such as these goat bagpipes, can attract a niche market and provide a unique selling point to attract music enthusiasts.
2. Taxidermy Industry - Taxidermists can explore new revenue streams and business opportunities by expanding their services to create musical instruments using their existing skillset and resources.
3. Agriculture Industry - The agriculture industry can explore new revenue streams by repurposing animal resources that would have otherwise gone to waste and sell them to musical instrument makers who are looking for creative ways to make unique and sustainable products.
