A 6-inch-wide strip of copper tape stuck across the walls of a building connects people and the building as it collects and conducts electric currents. When people touch the tape, potential differences arise. As an oscilloscope measures the voltage there, its graph is read as a musical score by a musician who plays the tune on the Moog synthesizer. The resulting music is a sonic portrait of the building and its users.
