"Gotthard is associated with various stories and myths. The road across the Gotthard Mountains evolved from a mule path in the 13th century to an important road in the 19th century. The first railway line across the Gotthard Mountains was established in 1882. The bridge and gallery soon became known as Swiss landmarks. Gotthard was, and still is, the political, economic and cultural center of Switzerland. The interaction between the imposing Alpine peaks and modern transport infrastructure is, and still is, a strong symbol of Swiss identity.

The album Gotthard Transect is the result of a seminar held at the Christophe Gilot Department of Landscape Architecture at ETH Zurich. Applying the line transect method, students recorded and collected audio and visual samples along defined lines through the landscape. The video is divided into four sections, each corresponding to a stage of crossing the mountain range. These reflect students' physical proximity to the alpine landscape. The word transect comes from the Latin words trans (to pass) and secare (to cut), and is also associated with the Gotthard Base Tunnel, the world's longest tunnel, which opened in 4.

The subtitle, ``Sight and Sound Observations above the new Base Tunnel,'' refers to a journey through as many alpine tunnels as possible. Once in the darkness of the tunnel, the view disappears for the traveler, but the traces of the tunnel along the walking route remain largely hidden. The only exception is the ventilation shaft, where underground sounds can be heard on the surface. "

Text by Isabelle Fehlmann via the label:

"The Gotthard is associated with a variety of stories and myths. The passage over the range developed from a mule track in the 13th century to an important road in the 19th century. The first railway line over the Gotthard opened in 1882 – it included the longest railway tunnel in the world at the time. The bridges and soon galleries became known landmarks of Switzerland. Now, as then, the Gotthard is a central link between major political, economic and cultural centers. Now as before, the interplay between imposing alpine summits and the most modern transport infrastructures nourishes the Swiss identity with strong symbolism.

The album Gotthard Transect is the result of a seminar at the Chair of Landscape Architecture of Christophe Girot at ETH Zurich. Applying the transect method, students recorded and collected acoustic and visual samples along a predefined line through the landscape. The footage is divided into four sections, each corresponding to a stage in the crossing over the range. They are reflecting the physical proximity of the students to the alpine landscape. The word Transect, derived from Latin trans (through) and secare (cut), also relates to the Gotthard Base Tunnel that opened in 2016, and is currently the longest railway tunnel in the world.

The subtitle "Sight and Sound Observations above the new Base Tunnel" refers to the journey following the tunnel as closely as possible on the alpine terrain. While the landscape disappears for the travelers when they enter the darkness of the tunnel, evidence of the tunnel along the walking path remains mostly hidden. The only exception is a ventilation shaft, which for once brings sounds from the depths to the surface."
