The work is a means of recollecting memories of suburban cityscapes that include a fish market and our unconscious ambulation through mechanical rhythms that create a pattern. A series of non-narrative motifs of sounds continuously lead us to make random associations with memories of the past. In the absence of the visual, this soundtrack attempts to look at how an aural stimulus might assist in creating a notional memory of the future. An attempt at exploring the difference between reproducing our ambiences in unreal spaces like a cinema hall and replaying everyday sounds that one might not necessarily notice as being part of one's psycho-acoustic memory.
