Stationary recording made on 2 November 2014 of the ambience of the main space of the first floor of Fondazione Prada's exhibition Art or Sound, an exploration of soundmaking objects and sound art installation that was staged in Venice in 2014. Sounds generated by cuckoo clocks, nineteenth-century automata, gramophones. The sounds from each object play in a predetermined pattern to both overlap each other and be individually distinctive; the listener can hear the loop repeat during this recording.
