Album Notes
A 4,8 magnitude earthquake in Hungary on the 29th January 2011 was the inspiration for this ambient concept.
Using raw seismological data from earthquake stations in Tés (Left channel) and Budapest (Right channel) for track 1, and Tés (Left channel) and Gánt (Right channel) for track 2, 3 hours of observational data have been turned into just over 30 minutes of ambience, processed only through harmonic generators, with no other effects or post processing applied. This is music, from earthquakes, for earthquakes.

Realised, composed, produced and mixed by Dave Pearson

"This new tune by Dave can create the type of feeling Eno's masterpiece was created to change, others might find it has a hauntingly supernatural and spooky vibe" -

"Wonderful stuff! This is music research at it's finest, exactly what electronic music should be about. Reminds me texturally of Alan Lamb's excellent 'Primal Image' where he used contact mics on several kilometres of disused telegraph lines in the wind." - T.J. Newton
