The Music Box is a breathtaking feat of DIY engineering, a collaborative revelation that seamlessly weaves architecture, sculpture, musical composition, folk art and installation into a living, breathing, “sound-making member” of the neighborhood.
As arts organizations go, New Orleans Airlift is one of a kind.
-Sculpture Magazine, Eric Bookhardt
High concept and nontraditional as it may be,(The Music Box) has found a place in the long history of New Orleans music. The Music Box's central idea — that music is something in which you can live — turns out to be the fundamental tenet of the city where it has thrived, and which it's inspired.
The Music Box is a not-to-miss event for lovers of adventuresome music, art or just gorgeous experiences. Bravo to all the brilliant builders, musicians and visionaries. The Music Box is many dreams come true.
“This is the way New Orleans embraces creativity. Punks, thugs, motorbike guys” (and girlyboy majorettes,) “this event brings everyone together and we all co-exist.”
