About this Item

One 3 ¾ x 5 x 4" wooden music box with the anagram "Silent" and "Listen" printed on the recto and verso of its hinged lid. Each year Peter Norton commissions an original a work of art to celebrate the holiday season. This year's edition is by Christian Marclay who was born in California, raised in Switzerland, and is currently based in New York City. The cultural implications of music and sound are central to his sculptures, installations, videos, and performances. For this project, Marclay has composed "Tinsel" - a seamless melodic loop without beginning or end that incorporates the gradual slowing of the unwinding mechanism - to play with our expectations of the music box. The box was made in Sainte-Croix by Reuge, the last remaining manufacturer of music boxes in Switzerland". A brand new, most handsome example of this extraordinary object issued in 2005 hors commerce and never made commercially available for sale in the publisher's unprinted shipping box with a letterpress gift card laid in, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.
