This 102-minute work evokes the sense-rich architectural site of the Janta Manta though electronically "refracted" sound and spoken word.


A sound work which takes the form of a series of spoken observations about the experience of a complex built landscape. The words are heard against a slowly changing, layered backdrop of acoustic sounds which have been teased and shaped electronically.
