Sounds From Beneath London

New Podcast Explores The Sounds & Music Of London's Sewer System      15/08/09

Tunnel Vision is the name of a new podcast series recorded entirely in London’s sewer system:

Producer/presenter Bruno Rinvolucri duped a collection of writers, musicians, activists and academics into wading knee deep through swollen rivers of effluvia along the miles of tunnel beneath London. Tunnel Vision’s troglodytes explore this hidden and somewhat mysterious subterranean environment.

In the first episode, embedded below, sound artist Sammie Joplin goes on a subterranean jaunt from Brixton Water Lane to Clapham High Street, conducting various sound experiments en route. Along the way, Joplin stops to improvise ambient electronic music that incorporates the acoustics of the environment as an important element.

The premise is unusual, but it offers a glimpse into a world of sound, and sonic inspiration, that few experience.
