Vision allows perception of a static environment; hearing is dynamic, depending on events and activity created by people and nature within an environment.

Soundwaves flow around objects, entering involuntarily. Visually discrete spaces can be audibly fused into one - generated and overlaid again and again - as a Palimpsest.

A line is drawn out from Edinburgh city centre forming the radius of a 20km circular route. If the centre is then removed, how does the city look? This generated route through the fringes is circumnavigated again and again. Information collected again and again, overlaid; looped; manipulated. Through this investigation and measurement of social parameters and key forms within the built enviornment a score is generated and played. Through analysis and representation the city fringes are revealed and reimagined.
