NODE TRACKING MAP






  WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

If you're reading this, it's likely that you received one of the cards to the left. We're glad you made it this far, but we're sure you're confused. Here's what's going on.

Western Teleport operatives are hiding geotagged plastic containers ("nodes") across North America. These nodes consist of:
1) a transulcent purple audio tape cassette containing the only physical copy of a track from the Emperor X music project Western Teleport Nodes
2) hand-made artwork corresponding to the track, and
3) instructions for activating, downloading a digital copy of, and transmitting the node audio worldwide.

The map above indicates approximate node locations as they're hidden by displaying this flag . The approximate GPS coordinates and descriptive information about the hiding spot of each node will also appear on the tracking table below.

If you find a node, you will notice the node number and a short alphanumeric code written on its paper wrapping. Find the node in the table below and input the short code in the field provided. This code activates the node; a digital copy of the music on the tape and a scan of the artwork will decrypt and become available for you and for anyone who visits this site.

If no one finds the nodes, or if someone finds the node and chooses not to activate it, the digital content will not decrypt and will be deleted from this server.
