A meditative mix of a day's recordings on and around the Spangler family farm (North Place) near Swedesburg, Iowa, from the beginning of July 2015. The piece incorporates oral history recordings and found sounds from the nearby Swedish American Museum and Historical Society, environmental field recordings from the fields on the North Place, and recording of a site-specific performance that I did using an FM transmitter to broadcast from a field on the farm- using my modular synth rig to perform live sampling from cassettes of my grandfather's songs. My grandfather, Conrad Dale Spangler, was born and grew up on the North Place. He wrote songs throughout his life, and also worked as a deejay at a local radio station.
