Venice Resonator

“Venice has got a very different sound. It’s very interesting, when you’re there, you always hear some kind of hum, like from far away, but also people talking, and you never know if it’s in the next apartment or if it’s 400 metres away, because the labyrinth of the houses works as an amplifying system somehow.”

— Sound artist Christian Fennesz, interviewed in The Wire
