Programme notes: "Using her voice and a hand held recording device, this roving site-specific intervention works directly with the acoustics and activity of Open Studios, resounding through the stairways and corridors to create a sonic portrait of the Spike Island building."

This recording is made by picking out some notes from a classical melody on the radio in a pop up cafe space, and carrying them into a resonant stairwell, where Stephen Cornford's 'Migration', a multitude of transformed factory second Dictaphones, is installed.
