Morose Code


Excerpt from a 12 channel, hour-long sound art project entitled Morose Code.

Installed at the Arts Commons +15 soundscape hallway, this work is a journey through time using collaged radio excerpts. This project was inspired by the following thought experiment: since radio waves travel at the speed of light, for every lightyear you distance yourself from the earth on a theoretical journey you would aurally go back in time. You would, of course, need a radio on your spaceship.

Morose Code is a condensed version of this journey: walking east to west you go backwards in time, from the 2010s to the 1930s, or away from the earth. Walking west to east brings you forward in time, toward the earth.
