Recorded in a small village outside of Chernobyl 20 years after the nuclear disaster, Danish sound artist Jakob Kirkegaard captured the ambient sounds in four distinct, abandoned spaces: Church, Auditorium, Swimming Pool and Gymnasium. The recorded sound was played back into the room and further recorded, over and over up to ten times, layers of tone floating in the emptiness.
