Contact microphone, 200m cable, amplifier
A contact microphone is positioned upstairs and the cable fed down to the quiet basement corridor below and plugged into an amplifier to play out loud.
People have expectations in silence, they can expect something. It makes for awkwardness. It's harder to be in their own space. The ‘maintenance’ corridor is a long, quite busy corridor but I find it dissonantly quiet. A lot of people whistle in the maintenance corridor perhaps to ease this. I want to bring down the background noise from upstairs down in order to compose a space more at ease with itself.
