Melody in Mayhem

  • Friday 11pm-Saturday 2am

Experimental, genre defying music for all ages and from all ages. Pretty much anything is fair game here but there is an emphasis on minimal electronics of the non-dance persuasion as well as post-classical, between-the-cracks rock and some good ol’ time Musique Concrete when I can find it. We’ll also give emphasis to new releases when they come in. Non serious music for the academic listener.

The cornerstone of tonight's show is The Conet Project. Based on the work of numbers station enthusiast Akin Fernandez this five CD set shows examples aplenty of these mysterious stations that popped-up during the Cold War. The assumption is that these broadcasts where code's transmitted from one part of the world to another. Even though the Cold War has come and gone these number stations persist and to this date there has not been a clear reason why. You can read more about these at:
