Powerhouse

I grew up watching the old Warner Brothers’ Looney Tunes cartoons with Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck and the like. One of the things that I liked about them was the music. Whenever there was a factory/assembly line scene, a methodical driving beat seemed always to be in the background. It was Powerhouse, a 1937 instrumental song by Raymond Scott.

I often have assignments in some sort of a factory setting, be it a bottle-printing plant, a tortilla-making factory, or a recycling facility. I’m always amazed at the complicated machinery in such places. Some engineer somewhere had to figure out how to make the devices do what they do for the different businesses.

Every time I go to one of these places, Scott’s Powerhouse runs through my head as I watch the machines go through their paces. Play the video below, then go back and review the photos again as the music plays and you’ll see what I mean.
