"36.1627 degrees North, 86.7816 degrees West" is a field recording taken in Downtown Nashville, TN. This audio clip was recorded digitally and etched onto a one-of-a-kind 6" phonograph disc using a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph Recording Booth, located at Third Man Records. There are only two of these booths in the world, and it records up to 2 minutes of audio. The disc plays on a small record player and is accompanied by a digital video animation titled "Invasive Species."
