    clockwork instruments

    A group of faeries were set up in the corner, playing some kind of elaborate, clockwork instruments, but the music that came out of them was thin and wavering, and weirdly melancholy for a birthday party.


    antique instruments?

    Re: clockwork instruments

    I am not a teacher.

    Hi Tinkerbell,

    I make a guess that the phrase in question has close relation with the notions as “Mortal instruments” and “Clockwork Angel” but we shouldn’t wander from the subject of the present forum.

    Regards,

    V.
