This work is both an experiment with 'glitch' or microsound music, and the bounty of fifteen years of short-wave radio listening.
The audio material was gathered from a communications receiver, by tuning it across the entire High Frequency spectrum (1.6 MHz - 30 MHz), seeking the odd and beautiful sonorities that haunt the ether: the chatter of data transmissions, the whine of carrier waves, the chuckle and splash of static, the background hash from stars, and the Babel of voices from broadcasting stations, in a hundred tongues.
