Solar Music Boxes [SMB] are music boxes powered
by the sun. Energy is harvested from the sun via solar
panels which power a motor, which is connected to the
gears of an analog music box. The boxes are wired such
that they can be amplified.
Solar Music Boxes can
exist inside or outside.
Solar Music boxes can triggered by flash lights to create
a light orchestra. Sound can be processed or simply
orchestrated by flash light interaction.
Installation. Solar Music boxes can act as
an accumulative sound clock. SMB are distributed under
a trees shadow such that as the shadow moves over the
course of the day each music is revealed allowing the
sun to feed it and let it sing out. A new box adds to
the orchestra each hour. The music boxes will play when
sunlight is revealed upon them- a sonic sundial.
