From the Youtube channel, Look Mum No Computer by artist, Sam Battle comes the insane Flamethrower Organ. The instrument, similar to the historic Pyrophone features actual flames scorching through pipe organ pipes made of copper.  

The second video referenced above is from a Red Bull article here.

Wikipedia says the Pyrophone is "a musical instrument in which notes are sounded by explosions, or similar forms of rapid combustion, rapid heating, or the like, such as burners in cylindrical glass tubes, creating light and sound."  The first pyrophone was created by physicist and musician Georges Frédéric Eugène Kastner, son of composer Jean-Georges Kastner, around 1870.
