By hacking the inner workings of payphones, building small electrical devices, or even whistling repeated tones at specific frequencies, phone phreaks were able to manipulate this analog technology to connect with others in far away places or simply listen in on the pops, clicks, and hums produced by the machinery of distant networks. All electronic sounds used in this piece come from these recordings and each movement is based upon the unique sonic qualities of calls from payphones in various locations in the US in the 1970’s.
