"Data harvested from the internet in early 1999, from a research center in northern Europe. This data is rendered to analog to protect the original data from being reverse engineered or reconstructed. We created a Unix software agent that sat along a high bandwidth backbone pipe, essentially eavesdropping, gathering data, writing out a soundfile of everything it saw. Ethernet datapackets were consecutively written out to a file with no timestamp. Later the file header was hacked to open it in an audio editor. The different tracks represent different states of the network at different times, and different kinds of data passing by.
The exact location of data gathering cannot be specified for security reasons. Data was rendered 6/99 in Paris at 188.8.131.52, mastered 7/99 in Tokyo at 184.108.40.206"
