“Torre Bert” is a name of amateur tracking station in Northern Italy, where lots of space telemetry signals were picked up by brothers Achille and Giovanni Battista Judica-Cordiglia between 1957 and 1965. That recordings included voices of first ever cosmonauts and astronauts catched by self-made equipment. Were these voices true or fake? Disputes are on-going for more than 50 years, but these recordings share with us that unique atmosphere of first space surveys’ tragedy and mystery. Karmiciel Wszy turns this atmosphere into abstract and anxious soundscapes with translucent melodies, hidden microbasses and droning noises. First KW factory-pressed CD carefully mastered by James Plotkin.
