Music box + hamster wheel + Hungary = the Harry Potter Theme Song (Hedwig’s Theme), The Nutcracker, Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, and three other songs.

Powered by walking and perfected with hand-punched holes in 8.5m (27.9ft) long strips of PVC, the Müpa Budapest Sound Machine was a temporary installation in Budapest’s Allee Shopping Mall, a celebration of the Müpa Concert Hall’s 2015 season. Able to play 30 notes, the contraption may also be one of the largest music boxes ever built.
