Using an underwater microphone the subsurface sounds of London’s river Thames were transmitted via radio waves through the city streets 700 meters away from the riverbank into the small basement room of the Museum of Installation.

The underwater sounds were heard live through loudspeakers in the otherwise empty subterranean room.
