Percussive mapping, presented as originally concieved, with twin images rotated
top-edge-to-top-edge, of the surface of an abandoned building, the former home
of a man named "Whistle Jack" near Houston, Minnesota. Once a cabin near the
Catacombs of Yucatan cave enterprise in 1934-36, it was moved by horses to this site
for non-payment of bills in 1936. The piece was shot over a 2 hour period
and in-camera edited. Sound improvised on a violin by DS.
