March, 2019: Took the Soma Ether out for a night! There seems to be no end to what sounds can be caught with this wonderful EMF receiving 'anti-radio' from Soma Labs / Vlad Kreimer. Just received the Ether from Russia via USPS this morning. Here's raw audio of an hour in downtown Austin.

This is a demo of the Ether on an evening where the entire city was covered with a variety of electronic devices, hooked up for SXSW.

Only had it for a day but finding it's very variable. In quieter environments, Ether can find produce/receive very calming ambient tones and purr along with some very polite static and reception. You can play it like a theremin, too, attenuating and gesturing on a signal frequency, and loop on something (or a device) til it fades out of reach. But this is a demo of how loud and nicely argumentative it can be as a noise source outside among a lot of activity. It feels like a nice audio photograph of the evening and street.
