About

Untitled 'Music Box', designed 2005 Wooden box with mechanical parts Closed: 2¾" h x 5" w x 3½" d Limited edition This music box by Christian Marclay incorporates a sly triple word play: “Silent” on the box’s exterior, “Listen” on the interior, and “Tinsel," the name of the composition, are anagrams of one another. Untitled 'Music Box' was made in Sainte-Croix by Reuge, the last remaining manufacturer of music boxes in Switzerland. For this project, Marclay composed “Tinsel,” a seamless melodic loop that incorporates the gradual slowing of the unwinding mechanism within the box.
