Prepared Little Player v.2

preparedlittleplayerv2_72

A second attempt at ‘preparing’ a Tomy ‘Little Player Piano’ toy. The inherent clacky-ness of these toy’s keys is pretty overpowering. I’ve tried to embrace this nuisance by incorporating the clacks as a percussive element. Additional percussive and melodic components were added and the internal music box mechanism was reconfigured to create an alternative melody to the original This Old Man tune that these toys play.
