named after a seaside museum in san francisco, musee mecanique mixes pianos, guitars, synthesizers, and vintage instruments into a unique chamber pop sound. founding members micah rabwin and sean ogilvie were raised in california, where they drew influence from the museum's vintage appeal. adopting the name musee mecanique, the duo began making music that paid homage to the same era evoked by the museum, which housed antique arcade games and novelties salvaged from an old san francisco amusement park. the two then relocated to portland, where they welcomed new members into the band's fold and began composing songs in earnest. their portland, oregon home studio, has a collection of interesting instruments and antiques - it's peppered in every corner with second-hand flotsam. tack pianos, trumpets, musical saws and garage sale casio keyboards mingle among forgotten amateur landscape paintings, broken 1930s-era radios and hand-cranked ice cream makers.
