Each piece is created by writing a different continuous value which does not register as sound to a PCM sound file.

The first two and last two tracks can cause electrical fires in DC-coupled outputs at high enough volumes.

How this release works:

Each sample of a cd (1/44100 of a second) has a value that can be any real number from -32768 to +32767.
That happens to each side, left and right, because a cd cant be mono.

On this release, the artist made 6 songs, on each song the artist repeated the same value for 10 minutes, making every song on the release a silent song.
Those values are:
TRACK 1: +32767
TRACK 2: +16383
TRACK 3: 0
TRACK 4: -1
TRACK 5: -16385
TRACK 6: -32768

Warning: Tracks 1,2,5 & 6 contain values that could damage DC coupled systems - DAB broadcasters should also be aware of the possibility of damaging digital systems using a DC coupled output!"
