[Track #042] 2'33 rec on a mobile on no music day

location: kingsway tunnel, merseyside, uk | time: 21 november 2007 | ambient: road tunnel | author: alan dunn

"It is 21st November 2007 and artist Bill Drummond has declared that date NO MUSIC DAY. Can we go 24 hours without hearing music and get close to silence? Or does silence remind us too much of pre-civilisation and our own mortality? I sat on the bus number 433 as it travelled under the River Mersey in the Kingsway Tunnel and thought about Cage's silence. The journey lasts only 2'33" and as we enter the Tunnel I simply press RECORD on my mobile phone."
