Onda Corta


Transient Nostalgia

Volume 8, Issue 01
September 23, 2022

Onda corta is a long-duration sound collage made from fragments of short wave radio recordings from The Conet Project as well as internet recordings. The phantasmagoric and omnipresent character of the recorded and transmitted sound is emphasized. Rather than being a sound-object frozen in time as a fragment of history that comes into existence when tuned in by a listener, the sound of the signals is explored as an anonymous unfolding or wandering process. The name of the tracks draws an analogy between the signal-SWR and the soldier as raw materials and war machinery, secretly yearning to return to a lost past of “peace”

The Samples were taken from: The Conet Project: Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations, available as Free access + youtube home videos.
