  Soul Zodiac
A temporal and spatial deconstruction of the Soul Zodiac double LP released in 1972 by the American jazz performer Cannonball Adderley.
Using time-stretching (a process where the duration of an audio signal is changed without affecting its pitch) each of the twelve zodiac-themed tracks has been altered from its original running time to a length of one hour and burnt onto a compact disc.

The running time of the piece is precisely one hour.
  The Planetarium Must Be Built!
A low-fidelity simulation of one year of ritual walks on the Bodmin Moor Zodiac. The Zodiac is a mythical system which has been created by extensive fieldwork on Bodmin Moor using technology such as GPS satellite data to empirically verify visualised landscape symbols.

It is presented in the form of a geodesic dome, containing multiple CD players, each one playing a recording of a ritual walks. Each CD player is placed in a circle on an aerial photograph which maps both the place and time of the walk.

  Aquarius Suirauqa

Multiple CD copies of this recording play constantly on stereo CD players arranged around the Newlyn Gallery, Cornwall.

A three-minute vinyl recording of a Cornish male voice choir, the Raymon Hill Singers, performing the song "Aquarius" from the musical "Hair", has been subjected to a digital studio process known as time-stretching, in which the duration of the piece is extended whilst preserving the same pitch. The track is now 60 minutes long and has been overdubbed with the same time-strecthed recording playing in reverse.
