road patterns in decay

road patterns in decay is an electronic composition recorded in March 2016, released on the Signals from Arkaim label, where you can listen and download for free.

It was made using only the on-board entertainment system of a Student Agency “Fun & Relax” bus going from London to Prague, specifically the radio. The piece consists of four movements, each of which is based on a different ‘rule’ for when to tune the radio up by .5 MHz (the default setting). Hidden in the fascinatingly complex noise that comes out are certain minor details about the given stage of the journey; just enough to form a hazy idea of the movement of the bus, of other cars, of the landscape.
