Notes

The locations included train stations in Berlin and Brussels. Gaming
rooms in London. CN tower and shopping mall in Toronto.
Hours were spent just walking around with headphones listening for what
each city would emit, randomly stumbling across an edifice or another
installation of machines saturating the environment with electromagnetic
activity .
Sometimes I tried to explain to security that I was only recording the
electromagnetic waves of the machines and not any sound associated with
the user interface which breached their so called intellectual copyright
sanctions.
I'm sure the engineers of the machines never thought to copyright the
electromagnetic wave emissions.
By the time I got to the CN tower in Toronto I had mastered the art of
getting enough recorded material before being ejected by security.
London was the most difficult place to record material, usually a minute
or two would be my longest take.
