Album Notes
The piece is based on actual recordings of phone calls and dispatches made during and after the attacks and, air traffic controller recordings just prior to the impacts. Dial tones form the overlying sound structure. The tones selected are all derived from available statistics about the World Trade Center: how tall it was, how much it cost to build it, how many square feet per floor, how many underground levels there were, the numbers of the floors of the sky lobbies, when it was hit, how many people died etc. As an acoustical element, the usage of dial tones is central because the cell phones were the only mode of communication available during the search and recover phase.
