A collection of recordings made by visual art students from Leeds Beckett University
over the past six years working with Alan Dunn and the sound recordist Chris Watson.
Each year a group of students work with Chris around Leeds, building their own contact microphones,
experimenting with hydrophones or working with bat detectors to create unique new audio portraits of Leeds at
various times of the day.
