The Junkyard Music Box

Tom Kaufmann's avatar Tom Kaufmann

The Junkyard Music Box is a human-powered, automated musical sculpture, made of recycled materials. The public will be able to turn a crank, which will rotate an underground storage tank. The piece also includes instruments made from: granite counter-top, open-end wrenches, brake drums, and rotors.

Audiences at the B.O.B are greatly enjoying the JYMB; visitors of all ages love playing the various xylophones and lithophones. Come see, hear, and play the amazing Junkyard Music Box!
