ShortWaveMusic (2005-2013) was a global sound project and documentary series which aimed to preserve the sound of regional and international broadcasting around the world. Recordings included low-power and community stations, pirate and clandestine transmissions, or traditional international broadcasters. The goal of the project was to tell the story of shortwave broadcasting in the early 21st century by exploring the extraordinary and varied ways in which people continue to communicate via radio, despite the advent of newer and more glamorous technologies. The project is currently on indefinite hiatus.
