The Oomphalapompatronium: A musical device as crazy as the name

(CBS) - The word "oomphalapompatronium" immediately makes me think of the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," which actually isn't too far off in terms of the wild wonderment that is this very unique musical device with a very strange name. Watch and see what I mean.

Totally fascinating, right? 

The video was posted by YouTube user "thingsBIGthe" who writes about the short clip:

This is a short promo piece I made for one of Leonard Solomon's musical machines. Len is the subject of a short video that I am working on that should be completed sometime in the not too distant future.
