Inside the Chamber.


Inside the Chamber.

The room’s interior is so silent that its background noise has a negative decibel output at -13 dBA for hours and instantaneous levels of -23 dBA.

To put that into perspective, the general background noise of an urbanized area like a city varies from 70 – 110 dBA in many places, whereas in a rural countryside area the decibel output is typically about 60 dBA.

The lab’s founder, Steven Orfield said:

We challenge people to sit in the chamber in the dark – one person stayed in there for an hour, and one for two hours, the second with the lights on. When it’s quiet, ears will become much more sensitive. The quieter the room, the more things you hear. You’ll hear your heart beating after about 15 minutes; sometimes you can hear your lungs after 30 minutes, hear your stomach gurgling loudly. In the anechoic chamber, you become the sound.”

Dream, whose real name is Clay (last name unknown), is a 23-year-old American YouTuber known for creating content featuring the survival sandbox game Minecraft. Unlike Twitch streamers, who narrate games as they play them, Dream is largely known for his heavily edited videos, in which he layers cartoonish sound effects and music on top of his game footage. He’s a co-founding member of a collective of other Minecraft content creators called DreamSMP; the group carries out role-play scenarios that have overarching narratives, making their videos feel more serialized and dramatic. Dream launched his own channel in 2014, but it took off roughly three years ago after he published a video about trying to find PewDiePie’s Minecraft seed. Today, his most popular form of content is “manhunt” videos, in which he tries to beat the game as quickly as possible while someone else tries to hunt him down and kill his character.
