The Music Box Village #GivingTuesday

The Music Box Village, a New Orleans based whimsical village of interactive musical houses inspired by New Orleans, community and collaboration, is the flagship project of New Orleans Airlift.

Collectively everyone was inspired by the materiality and history of the Creole cottage, the everyday presence of music in New Orleans, and the city’s under-celebrated class of tinkerers, inventors and avant-garde musicians. Together they envisioned that structure they were building would not simply be a stage for musicians to play their instruments upon, but that the structure itself would be the instrument. Plans emerged for an entirely new structure that artists could climb on and interact with – an aesthetically unlikely “house” that would have instruments and sound built in to it.
