Radio Static - competing FM frequencies

Dublin Core

Title

Radio Static - competing FM frequencies

Subject

Sound of an interrupted radio signal which results in two frequencies battling for sonic dominance

Description

As I drive through the city of Rochester, NY, there are a few streets in which the radio signal from Jazz 90.1 encounters interference from a competing radio frequency. This recording captures the disruption in sound from one station to the other. In the resultant cacophony, the primary radio signal diminishes in quality and strength as the secondary signal interjects in irregular pulsations. The primary source does not disappear altogether; however, there is no clarity once the signal is disrupted. This recording also captures the sound of the turn signal and engine noise as a result of driving during the recording. Such found objects put the recording of the radio into a familiar context - driving and listening to the radio.
