commissioned by Tate Modern, this work in the 'audible silence' series was available as a headphone installation / walk at Tate Modern.

the sounds were recorded during two periods of time spent in the Tate Modern building, both when it was open to the public and through the night.

JrF contact mics, coils and adapted geophones were used, along with Sanken & DPA conventional microphones.
