In 2011, a hum started emanating from an industrial man-made island called ZUG ISLAND (located on the Detroit River) into Windsor, ON. The sound is made up of an array of frequencies mainly in the low range. The hum has adversely affected thousands of residents in Windsor over the past four years. After two comprehensive tests, no source has been pinpointed. What is making this sound? Where 'exactly' is it coming from? Who is responsible?
Hums are not just local problems, but are worldwide problems. There are hum issues all over the world that people are dealing with. We are living in a mysterious low frequency noise ridden time and no one knows the long term health affects of hums including infrasonic sound at high pressure levels.

Kyle created a program called 'Voronoi 14' which we adapted/used for this music video. His program uses blob scanning motion tracking, which essentially traces movement. We used this in the transition of Royal & Sarah into the universe. His work can be found at velvetkevorkian.co.uk
