Thorens Swiss Music Box

Thorens Swiss Music Box


This is my Thorens Music Box made in Switzerland. I found it at the City Wide Garage Sale in Austin, TX sometime around 2007 before I relocated to Portland Or. It came with a dozen or so discs that played little tunes which was fun for a while but it wasn’t long before I decided to sample it so I could have more control over the music that came out. These are charming little music makers, and I decided to keep the mechanical noises that go along with it for a more authentic sound.

Recorded with an AKG 414 into an AKAI 4000DS reel to reel tape machine and then dumped into Ableton Live. I hope you enjoy!
