Album Notes
In addition to the 8 songs privided on the CD, the limited and signed editioned thumb drive also provides an additional 23 sound files are for you to play with. The thumbdrive is presented in a cool steel box that can also hold 5 cds.

The organization in charge of running the Tower gave us access to the monument to document it's ambient acoustics and vibrations - the intrinsic sounds of 7300 tons of 2,500,000 rivets and 18,038 pieces of steel moving in the wind and in response to environmental changes, as well as the sonic environment of the 30,000 people who visit it daily as they move from the ground to the pinnacle.

The vibrations of the structure were captured by geophone (a seismic microphone used to record earthquakes). With these microphones we documented the sound of the wind against the surfaces of the steel, the intermittent rumbles as the elevators moved up and down as well as the vibrations from people walking. We used binaural in-ear microphones to capture the ambient soundscape.
