For interest of those into horror and/or left field music


Recommended Posts

I'd put this in Music Discussion, but it's not really music...but it is manipualted sound.

Numbers Stations are apparently a method for spies/drug smugglers to communicate with each other in the field. Although these codes are now "dead", they make some pretty interesting reading.

Imagine Sadako from "The Ring" fronting Throbbing Gristle on acid whilist using the BBC Radiophonic workshop:

There are some damn cool MP3's on that page to scare the shit out of you. These were drawn to my attention on the SA forums but there is apparently a Coney Project CD available.

Music to Scare the crap out of you

I'm always interested in hearing music that creates a reaction, especially if its fear ;)

Try some of the Goblin tracks from Dario Argento's suspiria movie or the obvious one would be The Exorcist soundtrack, very creepy.

Whenever I try and create anything scary it inevitably ends up sounding like a pale copy of the above :)

Noooo dont watch that video tape!!

Dave :D

Great and interesting link!

I take it this stuff cant be copyrighted!? ehehhe!!!

A poster on Something Awful claimed that Wilco got into trouble for sampling it because the samples were released commercially under the name "The Coney Project", but I don't understand how something that isn't for any kind of gain (artistically or financially) could be copyrighted. I guess newspaper's stories are copyrighted.

It's a pity because soem are really interesting

EDIT: Remember, these aren't musical constructs, rather they're cold war relics from what I understand which makes their almost randomness even more interesting. I'm just sad enough to enjoy listening to them.

Indeed, that's what also adds to the listening experience. I wonder what the out come of some of those messages being sent was for example.
