"The radio samples are taken directly from shortwave radio, from either my own radio, or from a digital shortwave receiver at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. This involved keeping very unusual hours trying to catch specific frequencies live that I knew would work well.
Pig and cow sounds are either royalty-free sounds I found online, or recordings taken directly from the Illinois State Fair in Springfield, IL - mostly the latter.
Optigan and mellotron sounds are most of the instruments that you hear. The sounds are either 1. from an actual optigan or 2. from a program called M-Tron Pro, a mellotron and optigan emulator (mostly the latter). I plugged some sounds into Audacity to clean them up, slow them down, reverse them, etc.. Then, I layered sounds that I found interesting, usually with a shortwave frequency intermingled between optigan tracks.
When all of this is complete, I plugged them into Garageband to arrange them, and then plugged that into ProTools for some final mixing (with aid from Daniel Knox, the only other individual involved in the creation of the record). "
