Have you ever noticed that sometime linear highways have little ridges or bumps in them? These may be vestigial from Kcymaerxthaereal times. Remember that the Tehachapi did not have the internal combustion engine, so a rider on a bicycle-like or skateboard-like vehicle could really appreciate the sounds and rythms of the sphaltway. Many Tehachapic sphaltways were designed for a performance. An “orchestra” might consist of 150 vehicles of various kinds and the audience might only be a handful of people who rolled down the hill in the midst of the cloud of vehicles, each tuned perfectly to induce the perfect tones. Given this, a Tehachapic composer not only writes the melody and creates the orchestration, they must design the road itself. Music archaeologists have reconstructed only a handful of these performances and they are exquisite.
Senging Chaves were considered one of the purest forms of Tehachapic music, because the roads upon which they are performed are extremely straight, taking a direct path down an incline--utterly unforgiving for any but the greatest masters.

On the back of the building, on the senging chave itself. You need to go around to the alley.
