An immersion into the sonic matter from inner sound environments of buildings in New York. Wires, cables, gears, pipes, air ducts, boilers, clocks, LED's, thermostats, computers, video cameras.. a community of fragmented robots, machines that breath, roar, hum, rattle, beep, crackle.. a city from the inside, an unconscious futurist paradise. And above all, a tour de force of profound listening.
Through the sounds have been gathered from individual buildings, the net effect is of being in the urban Ur-Bau, the dynamo at the city's heart. Meaning not just the city but The City. (Evan Eisenberg)
