I work at a thrift shop downtown Malmö, a place where we sell pretty much everything that is donated to us. The other day my work-mate Viktor made me aware of a wind-up piano that were collecting dust in the warehouse. When turned up it plays this very nice melody with a somewhat distorted ring that I decided to record.

It makes me think of William Basinskis excellent work Disintegration Loops which is the result of deteriorating magnetic tapes of old loops that fell apart while Basinski transfered them to digital format.

Geek note: Sennheiser K6 M64 -> Sony PCM-D50
