fire alarm at university

the photo on the right comes with an additional soundfile.

the background: humanities campus consists of just about the crappiest of all university buildings – some of the lecture rooms had to be closed down because parts of the ceiling were coming down. its system of elevators is the only one in innsbruck (that i can think of) that i absolutely don’t trust.
