Wellington Tunnel

November 15, 2012 - Wellington Tunnel, Griffintown (Montréal, QC)
Wellington Tunnel — Jen Reimer & Max Stein

The Wellington Tunnels were built in the 1930’s as a passage underneath the Lachine Canal in Montréal. The tunnels were closed for security reasons and abandoned in 1994.

The performance combined horn, field recordings, live electronics and 12 sound responsive incandescent light bulbs. The light bulbs spanned the length of the tunnel, lining the ceiling from the entrance to the back of the tunnel where two  speakers were situated.

The light and sound guided the audience through the dark and resonant space. The amplitude and flickering lights grew in intensity as the performance progressed.
