one-off at the wrist


Posting last week about the constant hubbub in the British Library reading room got me to thinking about where one could go in the modern world [other than a church between services?] to get some peace and quite?


It appears that the record breaking quietest place on earth in an anechoic chamber in Minnesota which is 99.9% silent [apart from the noise you bring yourself]. The challenge not unlike teens and haunted houses is to stay in there for any length of time without getting the heebie jeebies.

It certainly must make for one of the most interesting stagings of John Cage’s 4′33″ imaginable.
