Stephen Vitiello World Trade Center Recordings (1999, 5'43”) “In 1999 I had a WorldViews Residency on the 91st floor of the World Trade Center. I had 24-hour access to a private studio and wanted to bring the sound from outside into my studio. The windows were sealed shut. The only way to do it was to mount contact microphones on the window and use amplification to get clarity. On any day, the sound would be different. On this recording, you hear planes passing by, wind on the building and the creak and crack of glass and steel.”
