Water continuously drips inside a clear acrylic box embedded within a 1920's phonograph cabinet. A light shines up from below the tank of water, projecting the motion of the water in light and shadow onto the inside of the cabinet's lid. A light to frequency converter translates the light patterns into a sound signal.
