Bosch Influence and the Giant Hurdy-Gurdy

I am currently researching the evolution of musical notation, instruments and musicians and their effect on Flemish art during the Renaissance (1400-1600). During my research I came across a website with information on Steve Jobe and his creation of Boschian instruments inspired by the Garden of Earthly Delights. Jobe created a giant hurdy-gurdy for Music for Three Hurdy-Gurdies, performed in October 2007.

The initial design and construction was done by Providence artist Jeremy Woodward in 2002-03. In 2006, luthier Daniel Thonon completed the Bosch Hurdy-Hurdy at his workshop near Montreal.
