Notes:

Luaka Bop releases many compilations of music from around the world, and when they were planning a collection of electronic music Yale Evelev and David Byrne decided that the packaging should take an ethnographic approach. David contributed the expository essay, Dave Eggers contributed the advance cover design, and the honey bees contributed their wondrous waggle dance as documented by Professor Karl Von Frisch.
