Due to the nature of the binaural recording, the Sonic Tube Map is best heard using headphones.

If you make a mistake while selecting your route, click the 'Clear route' button to begin again.

Volume can be adjusted using the slider below the 'Play' and 'Clear route' buttons.

A few examples of the journeys I have made using the record function can be found below. Routes are not limited to orthodox tube underground lines so, for example, I could create a journey that stops at Gloucester Road followed by Liverpool Street and then to Vauxhall.

These journeys are best listened to using headphones, as the listener will have the full benefit of the binaural recordings.

"Imaginary Journey #1 " featuring: Gloucester Road, Notting Hill Gate, Edgware Road, Regents Park, St Pauls, Marble Arch, Embankment, Holborn, Southwark, Convent Garden, Earls Court.
