Recorded in Britain's longest tunnel--the Standedge Canal Tunnel--during the Marsden Jazz Festival 2017, Norwegian cellist and composer Maja Bugge's solo album uses the natural resonance of the tunnel as an accompaniment to her expressive playing, recorded at a concert that blended composed work with improvisations that respond to the tunnel's unique resonant properties.

sample the album:
"CD recorded in Britain's longest and deepest canal tunnel. The Norwegian cellist Maja Bugge will in October 2018 release her second solo album "No Exit" recorded inside Standedge canal tunnel by Herve Perez. The music on this album is mainly improvised and responds to the 3 and a quarter mile long tunnels unique acoustic and sounds. She is also using the history of the site as an inspiration echoing the rhythmical patterns of feet moving the boats through tunnels in the 19th century and the sound of stones being carved out of the ground 200 years ago. This results in a haunting, meditative and expressive improvisation. It is a homage to a unique site and its sound. The "lone" cello responds to the unpredictability of the space and together they make something."-Discus
