An American composer Joseph Bertolozzi is in Paris collecting sounds from the Eiffel Tower. He's banging the struts, bolts and girders and recording the results. With that, he plans to compose a piece of music. Reporter Christopher Werth met up with the composer and his recording team on top of the Paris landmark.
