Playing tracks by
SOUNDTRACK I, 1.1.Johan Johannsson, 1.2.Anonymous, 1.3.Philip Jeck, 1.4.Anonymous and more.
For this soundwork I’ve created 3 soundtracks wherein snippets and samples from shortwave numbers stations can be heard. Some of them are altered or repeated throughout the soundtrack and so, becoming a part of the whole listening experience.
For more than 45 years the Shortwave radio spectrum has been used by the worlds intelligence agencies to transmit secret messages. These messages are transmitted by hundreds of “Numbers Stations”. These stations use very rigid schedules, and transmit in many different languages, employing male and female voices repeating strings of numbers or phonetic letters day and night, all year round. Numbers Stations, and by inference, spies, are as busy as ever, with many new and bizarre stations appearing since the fall of the Berlin wall.
