Yuri Suzuki - The Sound Of Earth
The Sound of the Earth, 2009-2012
"Yuri Suzuki’s The Sound of the Earth is a spherical record—the grooves representing the outlines of the geographic land mass. Each country on the disc is engraved with a different sound and as the needle passes over, it plays field recordings collected by Yuri Suzuki from all around the world over the course of four years. The recordings include traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts. The Sound of the Earth is an aural journey around the world in 30 minutes."
