Radius Sketchpad Audio: Dan Tapper (Audio)

Produced by Radius. (57:52)
Dan Tapper's Recording The Spirit Level, originally produced for Radius, and is followed by a playlist of works selected by the artist.

Recording The Spirit Level is composed of several recordings of very low frequency (VLF) signals. These signals are generated through electromagnetic fluctuations, or changes in magnetic signals produced naturally by the ionosphere, including lightning strikes and the Aurora Borealis. Collected using a homemade loop inductor, the raw magnetic sounds collide with interference produced by man-made technology to illustrate the relationship between humanity and the natural world.-Reprinted from Radius
