Clef Band-Box Resurrected
An automaton band-in-a-box made by Clef Products (Electronics) Ltd of Stockport, Cheshire, UK in ca 1982, the Clef Band-Box was rare, with only about 1000 made. There is an article on the Clef Band-Box at Matrixsynth.
Huge thanks to genius Andy Collins at Antech Systems for restoring one I was lucky to find.
Question is, what piece of music can it be used in?
François will be conducting a 14-piece string ensemble at AIR Lyndhurst Studio One next week, for the recording of Andrew Teacher's album: Red Clubs, Black Hearts, with eight string arrangements by Howard Martin.
Said François: I feel honoured to be working with John Prestage and Alex Ferguson at Sir George Martin's studio again.
