Music Machine 8 at St Thomas Library update

A few weeks ago I posted about my kickstarter campaign to raise funds for an installation that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing: http://kck.st/2H4utZg

I'm happy to say that the target has been reached and it's now under construction.

Here's a link to the latest update if you want to read about it:

I am working with Laura Collins who is doing the build of the casing at the moment, on Thursday we will be working in Kaleider to try and get it as complete as possible.
