St Albans Organ Museum
Posted on 31 March 2009
If mechanical instruments are your thing, you absolutely must visit the St Albans Instrument Museum, which boasts a startling array of musical contraptions, my favourite of which is probably the mechanical violin and piano duet. Check out this youtube clip for a hint of the flavour.
Now read about my piece Caja de musica (which means "music box" in Spanish) which is inspired partly by music boxes and other mechanical instruments.
