A day in the life of St Pauls Cathedral is one film out of four from the new "Oculus" 9-screen, 270°, 18-speaker installation currently exhibited in the crypt of St. Paul's Cathedral, London.

The spectral tones were created by bowing a bell and cymbal in the knave of the empty (!) cathedral at 6am. We also recorded the lowest note & some scales from the Grand Organ along with Joe the choirboy who sang a chromatic scale for us.
