Mechanical music is produced by self-playing, or automatic musical instruments; these may be versions of pianos or organs, or unique instruments such as musical boxes or organettes. In all cases, rather than being selected by the fingers of a human hand, musical notes are determined mechanically by a programme either pinned on wooden barrels or metal cylinders, or punched on discs or strips of metal, card or paper.
