With Clapham Junction being one of the busiest interchange stations in the UK,
it is commonly associated with noise pollution as well as chaos and confusion. The subway underpass is frequently overcrowded and confusing, and the general disconnectedness can lead to an increase in commuter stress.

Joining up the Junction is a speculative sound installation which aims to unite all 17 platforms and increase use of the overhead footbridge to relieve congention. Using the train-generated wind from directly underneath the footbridge, each platform is connected to a giant harp with a unique note. Passing trains generate enough wind to vibrate the strings, which would carry a unique sound up and into the footbridge via speakers, effectively turning the junction into a self sustaining musical peice.
