A Modern Music Box – a physical, digital musical instrument.

A Modern Music Box

Twinklr is a music box that you can write music with. You add notes to the screen and, just like an old music box, when you turn Twinklr’s handle, it plays your melody. You can add and remove notes on the fly. Play slow or fast, forwards or backwards. It also has MIDI Out, meaning it sends tones to any MIDI enabled instrument or interface.

Created by Richard J. Birkin & Tom Armitage, Twinklr was conceived and built in 2015 with support from D-Lab.
