Giant Music Box

German artist Niklas Roy has created The Music Construction Machine, a large public generative music box which people can operate via a big hand crank.

Although the hardware determines which tones are played, the operators still have a strong influence on the interpretation and expression of the music, as they can decide how fast they crank and where they interrupt the flow of music. The project is on public display in the Goethe-Institut Pop Up Pavillion in Wroclaw, Poland, as part of the cultural capital program.
