Years ago, I was probably in high school at the time, I attended a Gamelan concert at the Field Museum of Natural History much like this:

They have a very active community here in Chicago:  http://www.chicagogamelan.org/

There are quite a few interesting instruments at The Oddmusic Gallery, many with sound clips, including a balloon-powered bubble organ and a didjibodhran (which according to inventor Barry Hall also makes a nice cat bed).

     

There's also Brian Kidd, the Unipiper, who plays flaming bagpipes in various costumes while unicycling.

see,on youtube, the Barr Brothers performing in a bicycle shop, using bike parts among their instruments.Also. on Loreena McKennitt, live from the Alhambra in Spain, there is a fellow playing what looks like a giutar with a keyboard and hand-crank attached...

I dk what it is.

Thanks for that pointer!

The other instrument you mentioned is probably a hurdy-gurdy or "wheel fiddle", which sounds something like a bowed bagpipe. Certainly an interesting and cool instrument!
