A few months ago, my band Sunday Driver ran a competition. I can’t remember what it was for or who won, but the prize was a tiny music box.
I spent a happy hour or so figuring out how to make it play a snippet from one of our old songs, Valentine, by punching out tiny holes in a carboard strip. There may have been quite a lot of swearing in the process, not to mention a good deal of questioning the parentage of the pesky little device.
Before it went off in the post to the lucky winner, I managed to film the music box in action and edited it into this little video. Be warned – the cheese factor is *high*.
