"Joaquin's narration for EARTHLINGS was recorded four times," says Monson. "The first was in Beverly Hills in July, 2001. This was followed by a second recording in Philadelphia in October of that year. The third recording wasn't until a year later in New York City in August, 2002. And the final recording was three years later in August, 2005 in Burbank, CA (pictured above).
