This is a view of one of the automatic music-making devices collected by the Centre International de la Mécanique d’Art (CIMA), a Swiss museum of music boxes and automata. So, robots and machines that make art. Something people were making way before the first digital audio workstations came around.
I found the photo in the “Centre International de la Mécanique d’Art (CIMA)” category on Wikimedia Commons.
