Actual sounds from the surrounding area, such as car noises, break through the silence of the poorly soundproofed church interior. Besides these, sounds from a few tall, old trees in the chapel garden can be heard. Digitally processed sounds of rustling leaves play from loudspeakers in circuit-board windows, evoking a memory of nature. Environmental ambience, computer noise, and the humming and whirring of artificial nature mingle within a supposed haven of peace. In regard to the site as a "space of silence" the sounds punctuate long interludes of silence.
