  Work Details  
  I visited the empty space and made sound recordings and photographs. I worked on the sound recordings in my studio and combined them with archive recordings of markets. The finished piece, played through a surround sound system, fills the space of the disused market hall with the sounds of people and the sounds of work. Gradually this realistic sound becomes organised into musical structures which break down into silence, after which the process starts over again. For the first 2 hours I performed the piece live, then an automated version of the piece was played continuously into the space.
