“Life is a tunnel
not a cave
and you will find again
you left behind.”
This work explores close-up microphone recordings of a bicycle and field recordings from the Elbe Tunnel in Hamburg, a 426m tunnel for pedestrians, bikes and cars. Drawing on the cyclic, continuous nature of the material, the evolving sounds reference the never-ending structures found within such spaces.
The term isochrone refers to a line on a diagram or map connecting points relating to the same time or equal times. This captures the continuity at the core of the work.
