Binaural recording of the working silence of a research library, with its coughs, the movement of bodies and furniture, the turning of pages and the clicks of keyboards, even the unexpectedly obtrusive swallowing of the sound recordist. Near the end a recorded announcement informs readers that the reading room will shortly be closing. Recorded in Humanities 1 Reading Room, British Library, London, 25 September 2010.
