Audio is from a record from the 1950′s titled “Conversations on the Future of Modern Architecture”. It features the following architects in conversation: Gordon Bunshaft, Walter Gropius, Ernest Kump, Eero Saarinen, Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, and Mies van der Rohe. Each of the architects voices are cut up and randomly shuffled through seven channels continuously. The print includes the names of each architect as well as an image that is the result of superimposing seven iconic buildings, one from each of the architects on the record.
