Specifically designed for the Music of the Planets performance with Grace Kelly Jazz, this object has three rotating tubes that emit E3, F3, and G3 at one speed. The higher speed produces the next octave. Individual valves open and close each tube so that sound can be shut on or off. 

An outer layer of three shells open when someone approaches, and the tubes begin to rotate. The shells then shut.
