The third in Fraley’s series of sound search engines awaits the inquisitive! This highly detailed machine retrieves snippets of sounds floating by in the atmosphere. Passersby may engage with the search engine as it finds, amplifies, and plays back incredibly faint sounds from the past, while anticipating the random sounds it will collect next. The Lost Sound Search Engine is, in essence, a sonic time machine.
