Hmm  ... I don't recall seeing that post. I think that they are being 
individually record. The cylinders are being made by a firm called 
Poppy Records:


Details on how they do it are here


The BBC news story also featured an attempt to build a cylinder 
player (as per the instructions that come with the set) out of a 
metal cone, rubber tubing, a mint tin, an a piece of beer can.

Lovely, isn't it
