Music in Objects: Bicycles, paper, & oats make new songs

By recording the sounds from everyday objects—a light switch, a microwave, jellybeans falling into a bowl, ice in a glass, oats, a bicycle—and then tweaking those sounds with digital effects, sound designer Matthew Simonson has created a video series called Music in Objects.

What everyday objects would you choose to make music?
