ABOUT

Since its creation thousands of years ago, the tunnel has been broadly exploited. From smuggling to transportation, tunnels have been adapted over time to fulfil many purposes. In a similar fashion, the concept of ‘tunnels’ has been brought into the spiritual sphere.

Tunnels are often used as a metaphor for hiding the problems of our past; narrowing them into insignificant columns of dark space. We can become lost in the tunnels of our mind; in the darkness of our deepest fears. The Light At The End Of The Tunnel is an intimate soundscape comprising spoken and sung voices that express a personal journey through times difficulty to the light at the end.
