Johann Pachelbel lived in the late 17th century and is considered by many to be J. S. Bach’s forerunner. Canon in D major, his best known piece, was originally composed for chamber ensemble and paired with a gigue.

We build the musical box (a hand-powered instrument, capable of playing a short tune) in a wooden case decorated with motifs cut out with a fretsaw.
Due to the technical characteristics of the instrument, a slight metal noise is heard as it plays (metal comb teeth are plucked by metal pins while rotating the cylinder with the ratchet lever, which inevitably produces some noise). Unlike digital instruments, a mechanical musical box can never offer a clear, noise-free audio experience.
