Marxhausen was perhaps best known for his sound sculptures. This plucked sound sculpture is a headphone with two semi-spherical plucked sound sculptures at each ear. You can hear this sound sculpture in the video below, but the recording doesn’t do this piece justice, because it is meant to be placed directly over the head and played.
