ASMR is a euphoric static-like cranial sensation, triggered by high-quality videos of mundane tasks, coupled with specific audio recordings of tapping and whispered voices, often recorded binaurally. Online, there is a growing dedicated community of ASMR users and creators, particularly within YouTube, many of whom testify the phenomena reduced anxiety and induces calm.

Working with renowned ASMR artist Toni Bomboni, the video seeks to induce this feeling of calm through high quality panning shots of the environment of a Bakerloo Line carriage with binaurally recorded audio, creating an associative link between architectures of the underground as architectures of calm.
