There are instruments there I don't even recognize, singer looks like Pink, great incentive to not make a mistake with a man hanging by a noose over your heads 🙄

Just when I think there isn't anything better....

I found THIS!!! ↓↓↓↓

It is seldom that you can find an orchestrion that can play with that much clarity. What a great time we live in to have such automation.

Then again....

What kind of time do we live in, that a spell checker doesn't have "orchestrion" in it's memory banks?

I would think we had become more civilized than that.

Tsk, Tsk.

It's a mechanical setup run off of pneumatics. Instead of using a sheet roll or pin roll to make it play, MIDI files are used. It's a really neat setup. You can use most any instrument as well. They do not keep an exact rhythm, due to a slight delay in the pneumatic drivers at times. Also, most are programmed to play in a Ragtime style, as these were really big around a century ago.

I'll leave you with a few vids. The guy who builds these has a pile of them on his page, if you have a minute to look.

Hillman....on my ''favourite''  playlist...there is the Canadian  ''Bruce Cockburn ''  singing   'Wondering where the Loins are ""

Possibly ...you being  young and possibly like  @KWRB...very excitable when it comes to clashing of cymbal's and the yowling screech  of the tortured guitar string  ...driven by some creature reminiscent  of an  stone age era long gone...thus the dulcet  tones of Bruce Cockburn  may not appeal to you....but it is a timeless, well written effort ....one I still enjoy listening to...

Hey Mike: I confirmed, it's showing in NZ too! Global new album watch/listening party next month. I'll cover your ticket, and you go and I'll go to my own local theater (*theatre?) and it'll be like we are there, bonding, together!!

I am mellowing in my old age Mike. Kurt is the age that he could be my son and you could be his Grandpa😲so its understandable we may not share the same taste in cymbals bashing but did you give Amanda Marshall a chance👍 

much to your surprise I like Bruce Cockburn. seen him a few times in the 90s - he is an excellent song writer and performer. Don't know what he is up to anymore . He  never tours. One for you and one for me

I woke up with that song in my head and if I never hear it again it will be too soon  but my thoughts soon went Down Under and I found some relief with a love song LOL
