Music Box of Dreams
“Music Box of Dreams” is a 2012 public art installation, designed by noiseKitchen’s art director Wang Chung-kun and composed by musician Chen Chien-chi. The performance of this auto-musical instrument expresses the concept of breaking through limitations and making wishes come true. Even though there is no musician playing it, the instrument itself can produce light-hearted melodies in a fantastical style. It makes the audience feel as if they are in a music box while listening to the beautiful sound of the realization of dreams.
“Music Box of Dreams” is part of the exhibition in the Pavilion of Dreams at Taipei Expo Park. It includes musical instruments such as the marimba, glockenspiel, wood block, bass drum, wind chime, cowbell and ukulele. Through its interactive sound technique, this gigantic auto-playing installation presents lovely music, symbolizing the relentless pursuit of dreams. Each musical instrument contributes its own distinctive tone and personality while its unique form of playing works like a floating musical theater: a truly perfect combination of technology and art. In different seasons, it plays a limited edition of music for that season, to weave in a seasonal sense along with the music itself.
