YURI SUZUKI

The Sound of the earth

The Sound of the Earth is a content of Yuri Suzuki`s spherical record project, the grooves representing
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 over the course of four years;
traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts.

An aural journey around the world in 30 minutes.
