Visualizing Soundscapes

This music box designed by ÉCAL University of Art and Design Lausanne graduate José Ferrufino uses the movement of the musical mechanism to cause sticks of barley to gently sway. A beautiful visualisation of a melodic soundscape.

The box has a brass mechanism, peach tree wood resonance case and real barley painted gold and attached to brass rods. A custom made cylinder plays the song Son of a Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield.

The project was a collaboration between ÉCAL University, the Campana Brothers and music box manufacturer Reuge. More from dezeen.
