Music Box Migrations

Sonica 2012

Designed to accompany Kathy Hinde’s Piano Migrations, Music Box Migrations explores the idea of using a picture as a musical score. Images of birds, bird migration patterns and maps are printed directly onto strips of card. Holes are punched according to chosen points on the images or map. These holes trigger notes when the score is wound through a music box – creating a (usually pleasing) melody.
