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 audio contains 3 clips:
1, Vocal warm-ups in a loading bay, with smiles and voices from a passing toddler.
2, Back at Matt Davies and Milo Newman's 'By The Mark, The Deep' installation in a stairwell - picking out the high pitched feedback-like microphone hum.
3, In a resonant fire exit - singing the intonation of peoples speech reverberating down a stairwell from the floor above.
