The Junghans Watch


This is a picture I took last week at the CSC – Sound and Music Computing Group – UNIPD in Padova.

The Junghans Watch was the one owned by Teresa Rampazzi. She and her teammates at the N.P.S. used it to synchronize every manual operation they needed to create an analogue electronic music experiment, an ‘oggetto sonoro’ (‘sound object’).

The ‘oggetti sonori’ were reminiscent of Schaefferian “Traité des objets musicaux” (Rampazzi was at the GRM in Paris and she had a copy of the Traité autographed by the author), but they were intended to be an evolution, and in fact they were purely synthesised, not concrete.
