This is a pretty novel way to make a music box. Instead of having a drum flick metal posts, Akko Goldenbeld build a city on a drum. As the drum turns, the raised cityscape hits hammers that hit keys to a piano. It’s quite giant, and looks unwieldy. This isn’t just some random city either, it’s a scaled version of Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, where he’s currently in school.
One of the more interesting bits of this piece is that he designed and built the machine all within a month for his graduation project at the Design Academy in Eindhoven.
