Every sound on this cd was recorded on location. Hundreds of hours of
environmental sounds were brought back to our studio and edited to
capture the real ambience of this ghost town. During the recording of the
cd, we encountered some strange sounds that were picked up in the mines
and other areas. I still can’t explain things that we heard but they are used
throughout this cd.
Due to the natural low end of the coal mine’s and cave’s ambience, a sub
woofer is suggested but not necessary for the playback of this cd.
