Through a Door

From Sarah Boothroyd | 07:48

A haunted and historical soundscape.

Through_a_door_-_jason_barbieri_-_greyscale_crop_small The Nicholas Street Jail in Ottawa was built in 1862, shut down in the 1970s, and described by a jail inspector in 1946 as "a monstrous relic of an imperfect civilization where cells are medieval, incredibly cramped, with conditions far below the limits of human decency." How could a place like this not have a story to tell?

This work was commissioned in 2007 by CBC Radio's Outfront and the Deep Wireless Festival, a festival produced in Toronto by New Adventures in Sound Art.
