A number of microphones were and record the environment and its resonance to the manipulated, incidental and accidental sounds from without and within the gallery.

Wireメンバー二人と、David SylvianやEno、NINのアルバムジャケットで知られる画家/グラフィックデザイナーのRussell Millsが"Waterloo Gallery"にて行ったサウンドインスタレーションをライヴ録音したもの。
Bruce GilbertとGraham Lewisは、ポップ志向だったColin Newmanに対し、"Dome"、"BC Gilbert & G Lewis"、"Cupol"等で実験的でミニマルなアヴァンギャルドな側面を"Wire"においても担っていた。1979リリースのWire 3rd Album"154"の初回付属の7"EPで最初の実験がリリースされるが、それはWireの有名な発言「ロックじゃなければ何でもいい」さながら、シンプルでポップなメロディーの断片をテープエフェクトとフィールドレコーディング(掃除機の音等)でミックスするというものだった。
