My secret mixter challenge came from Carosone’s body of work. I chose “Path of Glass” and “Space Journey.”

I was a little confused about having to use a pell from Lessig. Although we were encouraged to include his pell, he didn’t provide one.

So I decided to run with the ideas of May Day as a distress call, Morse Code, and Civil Defense.

From freesound.org, I used several samples:

46092_ifartinyourgeneraldirection_siren.wav
54084_guitarguy1985_civildefense.wav
54847_izkhanilov_morse-sos.wav
80761_fmagrao_siren.mp3
329436_daytripper_morsecode-sos-mayday-988-hz-tone.wav

Also in the mix is a brief audio sample of a narrator saying, “Now, the beat is tricky but still easy enough to get,” from a training video in the Prelinger Archive about the rhythm, or “hand” in sending Morse Code. “The United States Army presents TF 11 3697 International Morse Code Hand Sending.”

Editorial pick

CSM’s experimental electronic mix fully embraces the May Day Secret Mixter theme, while thoroughly incorporating two of Carosone’s compositions. The result is innovative and enthralling. Take a listen!
