The Music Box

Music Box is the third studio album by American singer Mariah Carey. It was released on August 31, 1993, by Columbia Records. The album comprises ballads and uptempo tracks, including “Hero”, one of Carey’s most successful singles.

The History of the Music Box

A music box or musical box is an automatic musical instrument that produces sounds by the use of a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder or disc so as to pluck the tuned teeth (or lamellae) of a steel comb. They were developed from musical snuff boxes of the 18th century and called carillons à musique. Some of the more complex boxes also contain a tiny drum and/or bells, in addition to the metal comb.

The Mechanics of the Music Box

The music box is a type of mechanical musical instrument that plays notes by means of a rotating cylinder or disc with pins on it. The earliest known music box was invented in 1796 by Swiss watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz. Music boxes were initially made to play simple melodies, but by the late 19th century they were capable of playing entire operas.

The music box works by having a cylinder or disc with tuned teeth (called a comb) which are set in vibration by a steel needle. The vibration of the comb produces the sound of the notes as they are played. The speed of the rotation can be controlled by a weight or spring, which allows for a variety of speeds and timbres.

Music boxes are still made today and can be found in a variety of sizes and styles. They are popular gifts and collectibles, and their simple yet elegant design makes them timeless pieces.
