IDRIJA, ANTHONY`S SHAFT; AN ESCAPE OF THE AIR

ZVOK PUŠČANJA ZRAKA/
SOUND OF AIR-LEAK
All the machinery in the Idrija Mine was exclusively powered by compressed air, which was delivered to working areas and machines by way of a piping system. Due to minor faults, the air occasionally leaked from the pipes and this is the sound of it.
Vsi stroji v idrijskem rudniku so delovali izključno na stisnjen zrak, ki se je preko sistema cevi dovajal na delovišča do strojev. Ker cevi niso vedno dovolj tesnile, je prihajalo tudi do uhajanja le tega iz sistema, kar je slišno tudi na posnetku.
The heritage of Idrija inscribed on UNESCO`s World Heritage List comprises the heritage of the mine and mining activities in the broadest sense of the world: the mercury ore deposit, underground shafts and galleries, mine entrance buildings, administrative buildings, smelting plant, mercury and wheat storehouses, residental houses, school buildings, churches, and the paths along which mercury was transported abroad.
