ELEVATOR MUSIC [Traveling Between Imaginary Floors]
Singularity Records is pleased to announce the release of Robert Hakalski's eighth collection of original music.
ELEVATOR MUSIC [TRAVELING BETWEEN IMAGINARY FLOORS] is a beautifully imagined aural paean to the history of the elevator and it’s importance in the rise and development of the modern city:
“Two things make tall buildings possible: the steel frame and the safety elevator. The elevator, underrated and overlooked, is to the city what paper is to reading and gunpowder is to war. Without the elevator, there would be no verticality, no density, and, without these, none of the urban advantages of energy efficiency, economic productivity, and cultural ferment. The population of the earth would ooze out over its surface, like an oil slick, and we would spend even more time stuck in traffic or on trains, traversing a vast carapace of concrete.”
—Nick Paumgarten/Up and then Down
