Varied forms of the other miscellaneous percussion instruments such as the synth laser (Stick Figures and Future Retro), the whistles (Stick Figures, Future Retro, and Aqua Harp), and the church bells (Drum Machine) also return in the two volumes of Animusic, as well as the company's first production piece, Beyond the Walls (Concerto in 3D).
  • This is one of the animations to feature (slight) instrument mobility. Other such animations include Beyond the Walls and Starship Groove.
  • Right before the vibraphone fountain comes out, you can hear a note that is apparently played by an instrument that does not exist.
