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

...duh... it's because there are NO CARS in Venice. It's amazing how accustomed we've all come to their pervasive drone.

having lived in venice many years.. i know for sure.. that its hum often is generated by your neighbour flushing his toilet straight in the canals..
