This EP is based around unusual radio frequencies called ‘numbers stations’. These stations broadcast seemingly random noises and voices across the airwaves on short-wave frequencies. broadcast on specific dates and times, they were used from world war one and in some countries to present day. It is believed that they are a foolproof and uncrackable method used to communicate instructions to spies and agents in the field.

The messages broadcast a musical prelude, a message is then repeated. Using what is commonly referred to as a ‘one time pad’ the listener can decode the message. Using this cryptographic technique, it is practically impossible to decode the messages without prior knowledge of the decryption process.

THE POACHER (04:41-07:46)
