New York-based sound designer Bill Milbrodt led a 22-person team to build musical instruments created with car parts from the Ford Focus. Composer Craig Richey then wrote a score to which was performed for this commercial by these musicians who mastered the music in just two rehearsals. Amazing.

Here’s the specific list of instruments created by Milbrodt’s team:

-Clutch Guitar (ornamented with a backdrop from inside a door),

-Spike Fiddle made from a rear suspension mount and a shock absorber,

-Ford Fender Bass made from fenders and a pillar/roof support,

-Shockbone made primarily from shock absorber parts,

-Window Frame Harp,

-Opera Window Violin,

-Dijeruba which works both as a dijeridu type of instrument and a primitive sort of tuba.
