Stereo recording made in the Generator Hall of Tate Modern between exhibitions. The end of the Hall furthest from the entrance was empty, so I ran the recorder for a couple of minutes just to sample the reverberation. Because it is a school holiday in the UK, there were large numbers of children in the gallery, especially on the upper deck bridge about 25m from the recorder, and their voices are higher pitched and their behaviour extrovert. The space is large, so the echoes give a lot of atmosphere.

Recorded on Zoom H2. Transferred to Audacity and high pass filter with breakpoint of 180Hz used (12dB/octave) to remove the hum that is prevalent at this site. +6dB of amplification used, so peaks at -18dBfs.
