Swipe to watch full video Signal Tide is a sound and extraterrestrial radio installation artwork by Kovács/O Doherty. It combines real-time signals from an abandoned satellite currently orbiting the earth (the LES-1, launched in 1965) with specially commissioned music and sound, created by David Bryant (of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Hiss Tracts), Drew Barnet, and James Hamilton, in collaboration with Kovács/O Doherty. Technical assistance has been provided by Kris Slyka.
