‘Transmissions In Extremis’ uses only samples of shortwave transmissions/static/noise as its source sounds. The results I hope are eerie and unsettling.

I recorded dozens of samples using the University of Twente’s WebSDR receiver, a fascinating tool. 
It can be found Here and I thank them immensely. 
I also thank `The Conet Project’ for recordings of extinct ‘number stations’ that I have also used.

Thanks to fellow artist Ra Sonologyst who keyed a short review of the ‘Transmissions In Extremis’ album preview in the Unexplained Sounds Facebook group. He wrote ‘I like a lot this dark release from Birmingham. Based on a series of samples coming from short wave transmissions, it’s the kind of research I prefer, cause it’s similar to sculpting process. And in this case the sculptor makes a very good job. Recommended. ***1/2’
Thanks very much Ra Sonologyst!

Thanks to Matthew Sweeney at Make your own taste who wrote the following….For The Only Way is Down, sound artist D.N.P. worked with a software simulation of the now ancient Russian ANS synthesizer. Here is yet another worthy release to take the plunge into the absolute extremes of isolation ambient and dark ambient. It is refreshing too, of course, to see how employing such a deceptively simple sonic template can create very evocative musical spaces, in this case a pitch-black waking nightmare.
