Young people throughout the Bay Area, from kindergarteners to high schoolers, were invited to contribute a sound inspired by the place where they live -- a sound from that place they found beautiful, or a sound they might want to add to that place in order to bring it more beauty. Their recordings were assembled to create an 8-channel sound installation for the Downtown Berkeley BART plaza, as well as this album.

- Piedmont East Bay Children's Choir – Ensemble (dir. Eric Tuan)
