A team of musical wizards have gotten together with Jekka to break the sound barrier by transforming a jet plane into a MIDI instrument. Different surfaces on the plane are wired to feed into an Ableton Live set, and when the plane is played like a percussion instrument, the vibrations trigger the MIDI data in the computer to produce tones.

It makes for an extremely unique performance. While the band won’t have to worry about checking their music equipment, I'm not sure how many venues can house a jet!
