The end of the industrial age (2013) is a piece that practically consists of five wooden structures, each holding individual bass transducers that have steel plates balanced on top. These plates are covered with roofing nails. The transducers are connected to amplifiers and a computer that is running a multi movement, algorithmic composition created in the program, PureData. Over time the nails gently move away from the center, falling over, onto the floor. (The sound sample is from a previous incarnation that was composed to be quite more active.)
