A mysterious Aeolian sound emanates from the TONSPUR passage, its
tonal range shifting gradually over time. The audio was collected in an
experiment: a search for tones in the sound of a carriageway, inspired
by the activities of Scientist Hermann von Helmholtz.

Eight recordings were made simultaneously, by microphones placed in a
range of acoustic filters, positioned by the side of a road. Based on
Helmholtz Resonators, the filters function by vibrating ‘in sympathy\'
with specific tones in ambient sound, amplifying them and making them
distinctly audible.

The process of abstracting signal from noise is analogous to the act
of listening itself, which involves focusing attention on a particular
aspect of the audible. Perhaps listening also requires one to hear in
‘sympathy\': to have some affinity with the heard.\r\n
