The Sound of the Earth :

A spherical record where the grooves represent the outlines of the geographic land mass.  

Each country on the disc is engraved with a different sound, as the needle passes over it plays field recordings collected by Yuri Suzuki from around the world, including traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts.


An aural journey around the world in 30 minutes.
