More Tunnel Vision

Nunovo’s reflections on Tunnel Vision

On my return to the surface, I noted the standard city sounds with a sense of appreciation, hearing them as rhythmic ambient features of the sonic landscape. It’s not every day that the grind and roar of an approaching bus becomes an interesting element of installation art, or that the din of traffic, people, and other street sounds washes across the senses as a wave. This is probably the best thing I can say about Tunnel Vision. It didn’t reveal or animate subterranean architecture so much as it rearranged my perception of aboveground soundscapes.
