09. Musical Tea-Cup

Micah Adams

An acoustic prototype made during the Covid stay-at-home advisory. It was a test to put together unrelated collected things from my studio shelves that had a whimsical relationship.

This music box plays Claire de Lune by Claude Debussy and is securely installed with tiny altered nuts and bolts to allow the rotating handle to be outside and opposite the cup's handle, while using the natural shape of the cup's inside to amplify the sound.
