Simple musical toy

Yuugen is a very simple musical toy created for SCR, a creative label for screen media from Japan's THA.

As I started to sketch out a few ideas, around the idea of simple note sequencers and the like, my mind naturally wound up thinking about machines like the Player Piano. And then I wondered if I could actually make a rotating cylinder that you could add “holes” to that would in turn trigger musical notes.

You can download Yuugen from SCR.
