All Music Is Just Organized Noise. Meet Felix, The Organization Man

Felix Thorn is a young feller from Brighton, England, with a penchant for banging on things. He's a painter, or a composer, or a sculptor, or a woodworker, or a tinsmith, or a computer programmer, or a musician, or a tinkerer, or a delightful syncretist or an annoyance or something.

Go and visit Felix's Machines.

Interesting. I would like to learn more about where he learned to create and program his automata.

This place and American Digest are where the gospel is being glossed during this current dark age.

Just - thank you.

Hello All- Thanks for reading and commenting.

Sixty Grit- There's a fair amount of bio at his linked website.

Ro- Thanks. It is my intention to be an alternative to the lowbrow mummer's parade that is accompanying this particular apocalypse.

Intricate...but given your lathe interests, I think you'll find this a little more elegant:

It's a Glass Armonica...invented by Ben Franklin...a quote about it in Wikipedia: [It] excessively stimulates the nerves, plunges the player into a nagging depression and hence into a dark and melancholy mood that is apt method for slow self-annihilation. If you are suffering from any nervous disorder, you should not play it; if you are not yet ill you should not play it; if you are feeling melancholy you should not play it." YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Hello anon- Thanks for reading and commenting.

Are you trying to tell me about Ben Franklin? Me? Hold on one minute there; Ben Franklin was a friend of mine.
