Music' or 'Automatic

& beauty of such magical musical instruments !
From the earliest days in history we have enjoyed all kinds of
musical sounds from the simplest of rhythms to the melodious richness
of an orchestra. Add that with another of mans great passions, to
invent & construct, mechanisms have been created over many
centuries to play all kinds of musical instruments by themselves.
From a simple tuned steel comb plucked by pins set into a revolving
cylinder to create the music box, to complex piano orchestrions
containing, not only a piano forte, but hundreds of pipes who's sound
comes from air and various percussion to give added effects all
