The prompt from the Three Muses Collage Challenge this week is "Music". So, I thought the creation of a musical instrument from my imagination was in order! May I present to you, The Amazing Three-String Butterfly-O-Gram!! Once you turn the crank on the side, the trained butterfly floats along the strings, playing them. The sound is somewhat like a musical saw! The volume and tone can be adjusted by twiddling the glowing star buttons on the front. And to further sweeten the notes, the specially-made dessert mutes have been added to the horns. Now, the only trick is to make sure the butterfly doesn't eat the desserts before the performance is over!
Do you wonder what I was listening to while I created this collage? I was listening to a CD I made from the "MicMacs" soundtrack. This disc is made up of just the music that was written by Raphael Beau. Each piece is very sweetly mechanical and perfect for creating fanciful musical instruments to! Take a listen and see what you think! And if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and watch "MicMacs"! It was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the director who made "Amelie", one of our favorite films ever!!
