It takes a certain genius to use an object for a completely different purpose than the one for which it was originally intended.  And so it is with Armin Küpper from the small German town of Liedberg in North Rhine Westphalia.

Küpper is a musician.  Plays the saxaphone.  But he has discovered a unique way to enhance the human sound of his instrument:   Küpper plays next to large gas pipes allowing the sound of the sax to be hauntingly amplified by the natural echo the pipe produces.  This is the advantage of living in a town like Liedberg, he says, where there are an abundance of pipes positioned along the pipeline right-of-way waiting to be laid. "Sometimes I just can't stop playing.  The nice thing is, when it gets cool in the evening, I sit down in the pipe still warm from the sun's rays during the day and enjoy the sunset playing the saxophone."

We hope you too enjoy the sonorous sounds of Küpper's pipeline saxaphone.
