PATCH is an ongoing, bi-monthly series of curated playlists selected from the Radius episode archive. The series is produced for the Free Music Archive, an interactive library of high-quality, legal audio downloads directed by WFMU.
Siren Song takes up the siren as a ubiquitous sonic symbol of a post-crisis landscape. From air raid warnings to car alarms and tornado alerts, the siren broadcasts a public call of unease. At the same time, the cascading tones emit a haunting and unsettling quality which remains personally memorable. Siren Song uses found sounds from a variety of locations, adding a new layer every minute for the first half hour, then slowly removing them during the second half. The work seeks to construct a compelling sonic terrain from the aggressive, uneasy sounds which comprise our new normal - the state of emergency.
