chapter 1: THIS IS MEMORY

Terrifying bolts of lightning on a mountaintop and the ringing of church bells. What do the two events have in common?

Why would bell ringers in 19th century France think a thunderstorm was something they could play with?

And why is persistent sound -- the long drone after a bell has been struck -- so literally appealing?

Put on headphones or earbuds and be immersed in the first in a series of INSIGHT TREKS featuring authentic 3D 'locative media' sound. Slowly adjust the volume -- let the sound sneak up on you -- until it's just right for your ears. Enjoy the trip...
