Balloon Organ

The Balloon Organ is an organ mostly made with balloons and parts of balloons. The air reservoir is a balloon that is filled with air with a simple pump. This reservoir pushes the air to an array of valves that are operated by the player. When the valve opens, the air is pushed thru double pipe. The end of that double pipe is closed by a balloon, which starts vibrating. See the video for a compleet explanation.
