SCENES MUSICAL PRAXINOSCOPE

Scenes Musical Praxinoscope. A praxinoscope is a device similar to the zoetrope invented by Émile Reynaud in 1877 and patented on December 21 of that year. The viewer looks over the drum, inside which there is an inner wheel with mirrors at an angle, which reflect images drawn on strips of paper located around it. As a result, the person observes a clear sequence, a stable animation where the images merge and achieve the animated effect. To make the praxinoscopes that he would later sell as toys, Reynaud rented two apartments in Paris, one of which functioned as a workshop. The inventor received an honorable mention at the 1878 Paris World’s Fair.

OUR PRAXINOSCOPES

We have added optional music to all of our praxinoscopes with the exception of the lamps.

The music is loaded with the key on the upper part above the set of mirrors and is independent of the rotation, that is, it is not necessary for the praxinoscope to be rotating to hear it and vice versa, the device can rotate without the need for us to listen to the music. music.

-As times goes by (from the movie “Casablanca”)
