"Anyplace" is composed from the material deleted during MP3 compression of the song "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman, one of the original listening test tracks used during the creation of the MP3. Similarly, the video is the frame-by-frame and pixel-by-pixel difference between compressed and uncompressed versions of the original music video. Thus, both audio and video are the "ghosts" of their respective compression codecs.
