With applying air pressure, a PET bottle can create an astonishingly clear, caribbean sound. The ingenious thing about it: The bottle is a sound generator and sound box in one. The higher the pressure, the higher the surface tension of the bottle and thus the higher the tone. Thus, a unique instrument is born, that invites you to pause and breathe deeply: the flairdrum

"By making music from so-called trash, we musicians can set a sign" - Vivi Vassileva, percussionist
"If we can make old plastic bottles sing, it makes me more confident that we as humanity can find a sustainable solution to the exponentially growing flood of plastic, threatening our rivers and seas. By making music from trash, we as musicians can set an example and ideally serve as an inspiration for researchers to search for solutions."

Vivi Vassileva uses the flairdrum in Gregor Mayrhofer's Recycling Concerto. Concerts are planned this year with the Munich Symphony Orchestra, the Residentie Orkest, the Dresden Philharmonic and the hr-Symphony Orchestra.
