If reading James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake in bed isn’t enough to put you to sleep perhaps Elling Lien’s 12 minute music box version will.

Lien “took the first few paragraphs from the first ten chapters of Finnegans Wake… printed them onto strips of paper… then punched out the vowels (including Y!) and ran the cards through a punchcard music box player”

Good night!
