Lord Vetinari also has a strange clock in his waiting-room. While it does keep completely accurate time overall, it sometimes ticks and tocks out of sync (example: “tick, tock… ticktocktick, tock…”) and occasionally misses a tick or tock altogether, which has the net effect of turning one’s brain “into a sort of porridge”.
That is from the discworld books by Terry Pratchet. Ofcourse the nice guy’s over at akafugu made this into reality, and sells it, in a kit. http://www.akafugu.jp/posts/products/vetinariclock/
I had to buy one, and one thing lead to another and I bought three. This is what they sound together, with a bit of extra instruments added, and a lot of moving things around in time so that they swing.
I hope you enjoy this, I enjoyed making it.
