Ghost Army

by Sonic Deception

A few years ago I saw a documentary about the audio trickery employed in WW2. I was totally flabbergasted and soon absorbed anything I could find on the subject. Artists and scientists alike cooked up incredible situations to fool the German army. Inflatable tanks and trucks stacked with speakers projecting recordings of an imaginary reality were used to deceive and deviate the opponent. This odd scenario influenced me profoundly and drove me towards composing music that related these feelings. The project only collected dust inside my head until Radio Bongo heard of it and encouraged me to finish.
