LAND managed the production of 'Vauxhall Pleasure' for artists Anna Best and Paul Whitty. 35 singers were commissioned to perform to the traffic and passers-by from the roadside at Vauxhall Cross, London. The music, composed and performed according to the traffic light phases, was a re-arrangement of the songs of Thomas Arne, who was composer in residence at the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens in the 18th century.

Later in the evening there was a performance at the Tate Britain using recordings of the singers plus the interference of traffic noise accompanied by a live chamber ensemble performing Thomas Arne's cantata 'The Morning' (1755)
