The Silent Numbers

Description (in English): 

The Silent Numbers combines audio collage with original text appropriated from an e-mail group devoted to recording and transcribing numbers stations. Numbers stations are shortwave radio broadcasts of human and machine-read numbers and letters probably used in espionage to communicate with field agents.

Pull Quotes: 

I’m interested in the collision of cold war technology designed for espionage and the desire for knowledge and connection in the community of listeners

The Silent Numbers is a collage of audio and text.

The meaning of the messages doesn't matter to me, only that they are speaking, and though I will never know for sure, they speak to me, so I record the numbers.

Technical notes: 

The work is web-based and driven by HTML, JavaScript, PHP, and CSS.
