First topic I’ve ever created, exciting.
I am after some project advice if anyone could chip in with their thoughts if you don’t mind…
So I am currently in the research/collection phase of a project I am working on which consists of scouring radio frequencies to turn into some sort of ambient/experimental/noise/sound art thing.
On my travels of collecting and discovering these AM radio waves, I have come across some morse code and some chatter/broadcasts that are not English (more Russian sounding if I were to guess).
My conundrum is I don’t know what the morse code is saying (although less important than the chatter) and I don’t speak the language the chatter is in. for all I know they could be talking about anything from war crimes to their grandmas baklava recipe.
I suppose the question is does it matter what is being said or is it lazy to throw something in a track without knowing what is being said? The morse code will be easier to decipher than the talking but I guess I find it more ‘artsy’ putting in some conversation or spoken word that isn’t in English because if you have heard English people talking, you know its fucking terrible.
I don’t mind how long the project takes to complete (to a degree) but I don’t have a mass amount of time to work on it each week.
Any input is welcome, thanks.
