Track 12: The sound of making a letter ‘E’ and ‘T’ neon light. Lighting flame, heating glass tube, filling glass with gas and clicking of high voltage contactors. Walthamstow. 0.58
Neon glassblower Rob Court showed me the process of making a neon light at his business Creative Neon. A template design is drawn out on paper and the glass tubes are heated, blown and bent into the required shape. The glass tube is then filled with the appropriate gas and an electric charge passed through it to create illumination.
