Listen to works inspired by and made for specific locations, including flutist Paul Horn's historic recording in the Taj Mahal, and Robert Fripp's soundscapes for the World Financial Center. Plus, Alvin Lucier's "I Am Sitting In A Room," which actually uses a room's natural resonance to produce the music over time as the initial utterance decays, and Paul Winter's new recording in the alpine valley of Crestone, Colorado.
