The book acts as a companion to the music, but stands on its own as a piece of artwork. The content - essays, poems, illustrations, data sets, and photography - examines our relationship with the mysteries of a unique landscape and the rumbling currents found under its surface. The conceptual framework of the book follows a 4-part outline: Invocation, Reverie, Rhapsody, Quieting. We are taking cues from religion and mysticism, but placing geology and tectonics at the center of the narrative.

Stuart Hyatt thinks of this book as a sort of spiritual text (a hymnal perhaps), where the earth itself is the object of worship. He hopes to replace the concept of a monotheistic framework with a more diffuse organism, and to embrace indigenous, pagan, and scientific ways of thinking to help tell the story. Hyatt has assembled a diverse group of contributors with varying perspectives and world views, and includes themes from the modern environmental movement, where the earth’s literal voice (the seismic sonic data) gets to be an active storyteller.

The book is non-academic and is intended for a lay audience. 

Contributors include: Hanna Benn, Hanna Craig, Ashon Crawley, Anaïs Duplan, Ishmael Angaluuk Hope, Joan Naviyuk Kane, Kashina, Debi Kilb, Laraaji, Thomas Lecocq, et al., Paige Lewis, Enrique Ramirez, and Gustavo Valdivia.
