Flushes of Europe.

After Éric La Casa’s elevator recordings I conceived to document a series of like non-places whilst in Europe. To this end I recorded forty-six toilet flushes.

The most interesting outcome and greatest point of difference was the sound accompanying the refilling of the cistern. This varied greatly in duration and timbre. Listen.
