Orchestrion is a generic name for a machine that plays music and is designed to sound like an orchestra or band. Orchestrions may be operated by means of a large pinned cylinder or by a music roll and less commonly book music. The sound is usually produced by pipes, though they will be voiced differently from those found in a pipe organ, as well as percussion instruments. Many orchestrions contain a piano as well.

Orchestrion is a studio album by jazz guitarist Pat Metheny that was released by Nonesuch Records on January 26, 2010. Metheny's orchestrionics were built by Eric Singer and the League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots (LEMUR), Ken Caulkins at Ragtime West, Mark Herbert, Cyril Lance, and Peterson Electro-Musical Products.

Orchestrions were mechanically-played mini-orchestras of the 1800s, often built around the player piano, and the album cover illustrates Metheny’s modern interpretation of the orchestrion. He sits dwarfed by looming racks of mechanisms, custom-built percussion instruments, guitarbots, Disklavier pianos and bottles, all controllable through his guitar via solenoids and MIDI. Though a daunting 15 minutes long, the title track is upbeat, with a nod to Irish folk and the consonance and dynamics you’d expect from Metheny’s music. There’s dense percussion everywhere you listen, and the whole album is steeped in his lyricism, with poignant guitar lines skating over wholesome harmonic changes.

Orchestrions were never drunk or late to the show, like the band was some of the time. All through history, people have wanted to be able to have music when they didn’t necessarily have musicians around, says Art Reblitz, the author of The Golden Age of Automatic Musical Instruments. That’s the point of everything from a wind-up phonograph to a player piano to an iPod.
