The Noise Beneath the Apple® is a limited-edition, 200-page deluxe collector's edition art-style book full of high quality photographs and intimate stories from 35 groundbreaking musicians in New York City's underground music scene. The first 15 pages provide a historical and cultural context for busking. The Noise Beneath the Apple® also comes with a very special eleven track vinyl record, which features the original music of a select number of participants. The audio component was mastered by Academy Award winning mastering engineer Reuben Cohen. Only 250 copies of this groundbreaking work were printed. Over three years ago author Heather Jacks set out on a grassroots effort to bring attention to and celebrate the busking musicians in NYC and around the globe. This project began as a series of interviews and profiles that appeared in various music and culture e-zines around the country. Jacks was moved by the stories and the people who shared this public space. With stories from NYC representing the entire globe, she soon realized that we don't live in a small world but a large room.
