We meet a young woman, she has been working in the mine for about three years. She is moving to the new level at 1365 metres. When the workshop moved down she tells us that she got a bit afraid. At 1365 the sound of the mountain is more vicious. So, how can we account for her story? We turned to music. One output is “The Sound”, a song written and performed by Tommy Jensen (except drum-looping). No pictures are added, but click here for the sound file (lyrics below):
A hundred and twenty years of mining
Man and his machines drills deeper and deeper
Layer after layer are excavated
Parts of the mountain’s inner composition collapses
It’s getting warmer, wetter, but the sound
775 meters it creeks in high pitch
1365 it profoundly moans in a deep voice
Will it strike back?

Vi fick det inte att funka riktigt med inläggsbilden så nu ligger ljudfilen i själva inlägget. Hoppas det blir bra!
Grymt bra men synd att musiken inte går igång när man klickar på den vackra bilden.
