Czernobog, Wednesday, and Shadow sat on the bench in front of the Mikado to listen to the music and to talk briefly about Shadow’s bank robbery. This music machine is one of the most popular at The House on the Rock; it was built in the 1970s in our workshop using a European band organ as the starting point. The oriental façade is an over-the-top Alex Jordan creation. The music that it plays includes “Dance Macabre” by Saint-Saens, “Harem Bells” by Korla Pandit, and “Ritual Fire Dance” by de Falla.
