Weinger has produced eight short portraits between two and eight minuteseach one providing a different angle, a new listening point. The total duration of 45 minutes makes sure the topic is not beaten to death.
The CD also contains four minutes of video footage of the silo and its surrounding area. How to Order. International Shipping. Return Policy. Order Items by Catalog.
