I’ve been messing around, digitally manipulating body sounds and odd domestic sounds – but, so far, it feels cold, and calculated. Predictable.

But there is one audio track I manipulated that stands out:

– it is the Innocent Tunnel track, in reverse (listen).

It is not simply because the voices are reversed, but the reverberation is reversed too. There is a feeling, for me, of moving backwards through a space. It’s perhaps an interesting sound to play back out of context – maybe from within a tightly confined space, or from under floorboards.

It has also got me thinking about making sounds backwards – not recording them, but creating them in reverse direction.

Like the sounds and smells captured in the reverse narrative of Martin Amis’s Time’s Arrow.
