Through a Door Sarah Boothroyd

Commissioned in 2007 by CBC Radio and New Adventures In Sound Art, this is a soundscape piece about the Nicholas Street Jail in Ottawa, a structure described by a jail inspector in 1946 as a monstrous relic of an imperfect civilization where cells are medieval, incredibly cramped, with conditions far below the limits of human decency.
