Jin-Yo Mok's and Gicheol Lee's MusicBox is a sound instrument that

integrates an installation with interactions over the Internet. The physical installation consists of an old-fashioned music box with a crank handle, in which the pins have been replaced with LEDs and the notes with photo sensors for user interaction.

Users can draw a shape and pattern on the screen with their mouse and the

same pattern of LEDs will light up on the physical music box. Turning the

crank handle on the LED cylinder, any sensors that detect light from the

LEDs will make a sound. Data submitted by users is stored in a database and

shared by the online and offline music box.
