"The Hourglass" - a discarded laboratory-style stair was cut into an hourglass shape, and four metal pluckers were strategically aligned along a section of chain drive to create a cacophonous arpeggio melody upon activation

"The Music Box" - most likely from an old textile mill, this rusty hand-powered flywheel and belt wheel are joined by an axle with assorted metal teeth; metal strips of specific thicknesses were selected for the teeth to manipulate as they pass, playing a waltz-like percussive melody

"Pennsylvania" - the horizontal rungs of a well patinaed tractor grille get rhythmically plucked as a hand-cranked mechanism from an old dough mixer coaxes a large sawtooth gear to convert circular motion into linear motion.

"The Singer" - an obsolete but beautiful late-Victorian Singer sewing machine treadle provides the power to spin two 1930's film reels against one another, creating a cyclical grinding rhythm.

"The Walking Legs" - a pair of found industrial "legs" bend at the knee as their feet traverse the circumference of a small wheel, chain-driven by the operation of a beautiful 24" gothic revival flywheel.
