The sound collage Transmission: Hectic Mix was originally created in 1999 and conceived for a pirate radio broadcast on the eve of the year 2000. The work is a collage of radio broadcasts, analog media and film samples, static, and noise textures that reflects the apocalyptic discourse surrounding the turn of the millennium while offering voices of hope and resistance.
