Custom Built Music Box

The Golden Note

Simon collected music boxes and filed down their nodes. Then he soldered on new notes, based on a musical score inspired by the fibonacci sequence. Each machine played one-tenth of that score.

He housed the customised music boxes in a handmade wooden chest with a resin and bone lid. Gallery visitors were invited to play the kinetic sculpture, which was placed on a plynth with an access point.

The Golden Note was exhibited in Grand Parade Gallery and Occulture festival.
