GSM Buzz

GSM Buzz is an audible investigation of electromagnetic interference patterns between mobile phones and computer speakers.

GSM Buzz captures bursts of electromagnetic radiation when mobile devices connect to cellular towers. The buzzy bursts are a result of overcrowded cellular networks transmitting data in rapid succession, one after the other, every 0.004615 seconds.

GSM Buzz explores these synchronized interference patterns as source material. Each track uses a different generation of mobile wireless Internet to manipulate the repeated humming signals.
