Wooden Music Box

Wooden Music Box

This is the sound of an antique wooden music box recorded very closely and carefully to capture the mechanical sounds of the rotating cylinder’s pins plucking the tuned steel comb while the music plays. 5 mics were used to capture all the intricacies of the music box such as a shotgun mic, contact mic, room mic, and a binaural mic. There are 3 tracks. The first track is of the music box being winded up and playing until it stops. Second, just the winding sounds of the music box. Third, a carefully edited recording of music box’s song for looping. 1. Wooden Musicbox_Windup and Song – 1:50 2. Wooden Musicbox_Windup Only – 0:08 3 Wooden Musicbox_Music Loop – 0:31
