Ticking of mechanical (wind-up) clock, as captured with a simple homemade piezo contact microphone attached to the rear surface. The clock was a cheap folding travel alarm ("Equity" brand, made in China and purchased at a local pharmacy), and the microphone was made from a Radio Shack piezo buzzer. Recorded at 16bit/48KHz PCM with a Nagra ARES-M.

    Great! Sometimes low-tech (but ingenious) is the best solution.
