somebody please answer my sounds question i beg you it has been two weeks

Given the ciphertext:

133749125943201953959112893450339263373411975473947151946509505460748322191881233833725237161289267510412094221925042610615

and the knowledge that 1 and 3 represent ●, 4 and 5 represent –, and 7 and 0 represent X, decode this Pollux-encoded description of my upcoming field trip.

edit: fixed typo
