Track A2: "Motion of the phonograph arm is not necessarily identical with original earth motion, is more than occurred at Pasadena; however motion originated from direct amplification of original tape signals. Any audible sound here will be from the skipping of grooves by the arm and cartridge" and "Skipping is intentional and indigenous to the nature of the subject matter."
