This CD contains tracks representing some of the field recordings and compositions featured in the exhibition 'Urban Utopias' and an essay by Jay Roche.

More recently the contemporary philosopher John Gray suggests we need to look beyond the aspirational hopes of Modernism and look again at what it is to exist on this planet. We are so blinded by progressthet we do not know who we are. He goes on to explain that "by enlarging human power, science has generated the illusion that humanity can take charge of his destiny. Borne along on a flood of invention, the modern world believes it has left the past behind."
