Music Boxes, Music Machines and May the 4th

I've been working on a number of different things for the next Earworms' concert. My piece, Between the Moon and the Earth for string quartet, backing track and film was composed in 2002 and has had several performances since then so requires no work at this stage.

Exeter Contemporary Sounds are currently working on a programme of Machine Music which will be performed at the Exeter Phoenix in July and some pieces that we are going to play will be performed at the Northcott on May 4th.

We have arranged The Model by Kraftwerk for the quartet and Andrew has arranged a Bach Fugue. In our Machine Music programme there is a piece for music boxes and I have made a music box version of the Earworms' Jingle.

Here is a picture of the roll that goes through the music box:

and here is a video of it being played:

Another piece of mine that we (audience included) will be performing on May 4th is Music Machine 1. For this piece you need no musical ability nor an instrument (but having one or both does not exclude you). We will explain more on the day but if you can't wait have a read about it here. If you've got an instrument that you want to bring along please do, it can be a toy instrument, whistle in fact anything that can make a sound. Here are some of the instruments we'll be bringing:
