Mobius music strip plays on … and on …


From the MAKE Flickr pool

Another compelling artifact from Ranjit’s adventures in musical instrument making – Instrument-a-day 24: Mobius Music

It’s a familiar tune played upside-down and backwards, and then just backwards, and then upside-down and backwards again. Over and over, forever.

Looks like he’s using a DIY music box kit. Hmmm, anyone decipher the identity of the original “familiar” tune?

    I really wish I knew the tune, it’s beautiful.

    Clearly not Happy Birthday to you though…

  3. Collin Cunningham says:

    ya – I actually grabbed the audio and reversed it to no avail :/

  4. ranjit says:

    …it IS happy birthday! Collin, did you listen to the whole thing reversed, or only part of it? You might have heard only the part that was also inverted.

  5. Collin Cunningham says:

    @ranjit – aha! That makes sense, must’ve been the inverted portion
