elegant_machinesThings that whirr, rotate, grind, click and clack. Strange machines that defy categorization. Levers, cogwheels and camshafts. Wood, metal and plastic, scrapes and screams. Some are simple loops of a single sound, while others are more complex movements.

Most of the sounds lend themselves best to small-ish mechanisms, but pitching down works well on many of them, for creating more substantial sounding movements.Sources include everything from an antique coffee grinder to old 8mm film cameras, and various nameless props and gadgets - perfect for designing sounds of strange machines and mechanical contraptions.
