This percussive soundscape comes courtesy of French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s clinamen v.2. You’re hearing the harmony produced by floating porcelain bowls clinking together as they gently circulate on water. A version of this work was presented at SFMOMA as part of the exhibition Soundtracks. Watch below to see the bowls float dreamlike in an indoor pool, and then learn more about the work in the exhibition’s accompanying digital publication.
