Wow! There are so many artists who have taken the traditional music box into entirely new directions. So Inspiring...

This artist is in the pinball industry.

This is a piece artists added imagery to the perforated strips. Adding a comic-strip-like narrative to the piece.

I love how this next piece connects science and art. Their site says "ALMA MUSIC BOX is an artwork created from the ALMA observation data of R Sculptoris, a dying star at its final stage of life. The radio image of the gas emission from the star shows a circular shape, which was transformed into a musical disc by making holes at places where the observed radio intensity was strong." So cool, huh!?

These last two pieces are repurposing old machines to become musical.
