Full Set Box & Papers
MusicMachine 1 is the first music box of a trilogy that looks and sounds out of this world. It contains all the traditional, time-honoured elements of a superlative high-end music box, but designed and configured in a totally unconventional way. This MusicMachine comes from a collaboration between MB& F and REUGE; the premier producer of music boxes in the world today and is limited to 33 pieces world-wide.
Each of the cylinders on MusicMachine 1 plays three tunes. On the left, may the Force be with you with the ‘Star Wars’ theme, the ‘Imperial March’ from ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, and the theme from ‘Star Trek’. Back on earth, the right cylinder plays Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick in the Wall’, Deep Purple’s ‘Smoke on the Water’ and John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’.
