Music Box Overview

The Music Box is a 19th century automatic musical instrument that produces sounds by the use of a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder or disc so as to pluck the tuned teeth of a steel comb. They were developed from musical snuff boxes of the 18th century and called carillons à musique. Some of the more complex boxes also have a tiny drum and small bells, in addition to the metal comb. Note that the tone of a musical box is unlike that of any musical instrument (although it is best described as somewhere between the timbres of an mbira).


The Microhammer Music Boxes have been sampled extensively in both dry, room/studio and hall like locations for maximum user flexibility. In addition we have made abstract versions of the patches to get even more content out of these wonderful, childish and haunting devices.
