It isn't that the darkrooms are completely silent, but that they are as quiet as any other room on the floor. The roar of the ventilation hoods is conspicuously absent, allowing only the sound of the quiet clicking of a jammed valve to float through the drop ceiling, disembodied. With the white and amber lights off, only the red light remains, not bright enough to illuminate anything beyond a six foot patch of ceiling tiles and the very tops of the ventilation shaft disappearing into the walls.

The pipes are all creaking and settling as if they cannot make up their mind which way to lie before going to sleep.
