Chicago Phonography is a loose collective of artists interested in promoting creative activity in listening by producing and broadcasting unprocessed field recordings as an ensemble in a context of live improvisation.

This is a four-hour continuous performance by Chicago Phonography broadcasted live from WLUW 88.7 Independent Community Radio studios for the experimental music program Something Else hosted by Philip Von Zweck.
Performing on this evening were Todd Carter, Chad Clark, Chris Hammes, Eric Leonardson, Joshua Manchester, Patrick Scott, and Aaron Zarzutzki.
