Work Overview

The Signals Directorate is an arm of the Australian Government that provides foreign signals intelligence, known as Sigint, to the Australian Defence Force and Australian Government to support military and strategic decision-making. Their motto is - "Reveal their secrets: protect our own". They are known for their 'listening in' on mobile phone conversations, most famously revealed by Edward Snowden's documents relating to Australia's relationship with Malaysia.
The score takes images and colours from the graphs generated by the organisation that result from tracking of data, and can be read by any number of musicians. The backing track, embedded into the score, is an excerpt of one of the composer's past bass noise performances.
