The Signal

The Signal is a project about communication, technology, conspiracy theories and community.

UVB-76 is an arcane, shortwave radio frequency based somewhere in Russia that has been broadcasting a steady stream of beeps, blips, buzzes and chirps since the Cold War.  And no one knows what it is (except possibly whoever is broadcasting it).  (Read more about UVB-76: Inside the Russian Short Wave Radio EnigmaWired)

This project is an attempt to communicate the experience around listening to an encoded stream of information and trying to decipher it, and the community of individuals around the world who are actively trying to do that with UVB-76 through instrumental electronic music.
