The Music Box is the brainchild of Brooklyn street artist Swoon, who collaborated with artists and musicians to turn salvaged materials into a miniature shantytown on the banks of the Mississippi, where each house doubles as a makeshift musical instrument.
There is a Singing House in which a harmonic drone synthesizer is tuned to the weather; wind speed, sun, moonlight, rainfall, and lightning modify an ever-present E major chord. There is a Lookout Tower Drone Organ, with a spiral staircase covered in pipes from a church organ destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. There is a Rotational Ruckus Machine, where industrial fans are converted into percussive sound machines (complete with rat traps for foot pedals).
