Taking the London Underground Journey Planner - an established and well known signifier of London - a navigation aid for millions of visitors and residents, I set out to discover, visit and see the whole of London.

The whole journey was recorded with microphones disguised as headphones. The binaural recordings comprise 60 hours of real-time audio of my visit to every Underground station on the plan. This plays back via a computer program which is itself selecting a continuous journey at each station with line interchanges. Presented with an accompanying screen displaying the colour demarcating the current line being traveled.

The computer is selecting a possible and continuous journey across and around London on the Underground transit system, playing back in the same time scale as the journey takes. The journey does not end.

The audio was recording using stereo microphones disguised as personal headphones creating a binaural recording.
