Clever musician plays flute made from street barricade



He’s taking street performing to the next level. 

Catalan musician Xavier Lozano won fans and hearts with a video of him playing a rusted metal barricade like a flute.

Marcel Barrena, a 39-year-old director who has won two Gaudí Awards, Catalonia’s answer to the Oscars, posted a snap of the inventive music man to his Instagram feed, racking up over 6,500 views. And there’s a few more nontraditional wind instruments up Lozano’s sleeves. 

“Buscando nuevos sonidos para @mediterraneofilm,” wrote Barrena, which translated means, “Looking for new sounds for @mediterraneofilm,” which is the director’s latest project.

The sound of a street barricade? Soft, deep, wind sounds bouncing off the construction site mainstay. No word on whether he was up to date on his tetanus shot.

But it’s not just small fences that Lozano brings into the world of music. He’s managed to coax sounds from a two-barrel shotgun, a plastic bottle, a brick and a bicycle tire.

He called his process, according to his Instagram bio, “La música tot ho habita,” or “Music inhabits everything.”
