mobius strip music box Möbius strip music box

Ranjit Bhatnagar took one of those punched-strip programmable music box kits, put a half-twist in the strip, and looped it back on itself to make an endlessly-looping Möbius strip music box. The melody plays through once, and then a second time with the ordering of the notes on the scale reversed. An interesting compositional challenge, if nothing else.
