(Scroll down for video) In an interesting experiment, one artist has created music with fresh produce.

New York based composer, producer and artist, Jonathan Dagan, aka J.Viewz, played beautiful music with musical instruments made with fresh fruits and vegetables.

J.Viewz who is originally from Israel, used a circuit board called the Makey Makey which allows you to connect almost anything to a keyboard which will then created music.
The concept is simple. All you need is a computer, an object like the fruit and yourself. Connect these to the Makey Makey and you have cool music.

Touching the object closes the circuit and sends a signal to the Makey Makey. The circuit board then translates this signal into a single electronic keyboard, which is sent to your computer.

The computer cannot tell the difference between a signal from the Makey Makey and a signal from a real keyboard.
