The sound piece Eroding in a Valley of Death is based on field recording from the desert dunes in Mirties slėnis, the Curonian Spit, Lithuania. There are different theories to the desert being named Death Valley, one popular theory is that French soldiers that were held prisoners during German occupation were buried in the the sand. A memorial was erected to honor the soldiers whom were held prisoners in the camp, however no traces of burial sites has been found in the dunes.
