distant transmissions flicker and fade, there's a drift on the signal...a ghost in the phase...
A few years ago I became fascinated by the release of The Conet Project, recordings of the famous short-wave "numbers" stations, rumored to be operated by various covert intelligence operations. These stations transmit in different languages, employing male and female voices repeating strings of numbers or phonetic letters day and night, all year round. The recordings a very spooky.
I've used these recordings in a few mixes & was always interested in exploring other shortwave recordings. Then I came across the SHORTWAVEMUSIC blog. Run by Myke Weiskopf, the blog is dedicated to music and/or musical noise intercepted via shortwave radio. These musical recordings feature a bit of noise, hum, drift & interference.
This mix is a collection of tune that have that noisy, radio fell & actual shortwave recordings.
