Discover Mechanical Music
Welcome to mechanicalmusic.org!
For 7 years, this website has been a source for information, music, and more for the world of automatic musical instruments.
'Mechanical Music' is a general term for the incredible musical marvels such as player pianos, band organs, nickelodeons, and orchestrions, all of these able to operate without any 'live' playing. Besides being innovative machines, automatic instruments produce unique, wonderful music that is impossible to be played by a human alone. Creating smiles, memories, and music for generations, these instruments are truly magic-- serenading the modern ear just as they had dozens of years ago.
