Artist and musician Matthew Herbert's work for the Wellcome Collection's 'This is a Voice' exhibition invites members of the public to record a single note, which joins a chorus of voices, including those of singers from the Royal Opera House. The piece is played back in the space, at the Opera House, and online in an ever changing soundscape.

Factory Settings fabricated and installed the soundproof room which is built from raw mild steel, with a soft velvet interior.
