Side A comprises the First and Second Movements: the First is composed of seismic waves, VLF radiation (electrical storms reflected on the Ionosphere), and the songs of Humpback Whales; in the Second Movement, three whales reach up to the surface to breathe through their blowholes, accompanied by wind gusts and birds circling above.

Side C comprises the Third and Fourth Movements: in the Third, a high-pressure geyser is paired up with cymbal washes and seismic waves; and in the Fourth and last, the wind plays electric guitar accompanied by the sea surf down on the beach, in Stromboli. It ends with a locked groove featuring the ambient sound within the crater of an extinct volcano, in Iceland.
