"Field recordings made in greater Los Angeles from December, 2004 to August, 2006.Each recording is an unedited ten-minute take from a single location.

Sine tones and mixing completed in Michael Pisaro's home studio in Santa Clarita, California.

Each ten-minute piece is followed by two minutes of silence.

Recordings were mastered with home stereo playback in mind.

In general, it is best to set the volume control on your system to a normal level (that is, the level at which most of your other music is played) and to let it remain in that position.

Volume levels of the pieces vary intentionally over the course of the series."-Editions Wandelweiser
