Numbers stations are shortwave radio stations of uncertain origin. They generally broadcast voices reading streams of numbers, words, letters (sometimes using a radio alphabet), tunes or morse code. - Wikipedia

This is a collaborative piece with Ben Walker as part of the Contextual Villains Collaborative.

The audio track is compiled from two samples of number station broadcasts. One layer is of a woman sounding out numbers at random in Polish, another of a man speaking Russian. I used a segment of Steve Reich's 'Sextet (Part III) with Members of Nexus' and finally an abstract sound scape I made using Reason v4.
