Paul Horn describes recording in this amazing structure in his liner notes: "There are many theories, but no one knows exactly when, why, or how this pyramid was built. The Great Pyramid is the tallest, so huge it staggers the imagination. We could build thirty Empire State buildings from its stones. Its dimensions are perfect, and it is the only one that has chambers within the structure itself."

Ben Pietsch, an expert on the Great Pyramid, told Horn that every room in the pyramid has a basic vibration to it and that if Paul found it and identified with it, he would become attuned to that particular space. This really intrigued Horn and he actually took a tuner with him so he could tune his flute to the "perfect" frequency for each room.

Paul continues with a description of recording in the King's Chamber. "Sitting on the floor in front of the coffer, with the stereo mike in the center of the room, I began playing alto flute. The echo sounded wonderful, lasting about eight seconds. I waited for the echo to decay and then played again. Groups of notes suspended in air and came back together as a chord. Sometimes certain notes stood out more than others, always changing. I listened and responded, as if I were playing with another musician."
