This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between
the Robert M. Trammel Music Conservatory and The Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa. Amazingly, 97% of the machine's components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa.....all farm equipment.
It took the team a combined 13,029 hours (6.26 years) of set-up, alignment, calibration and tuning before filming this video.
It is now on display at the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.
