  Work Details  
  The principle is that the radio set-up allows me to pick up the sine-wave of AC electricity and then tune it just like a musical instrument - using an upper and lower side-band filter designed for interpreting morse-code transmissions. It went absolutely perfectly - from excruciating highs to real heart-stopping infrasonic noise crashes. I was microtuning interference patterns of 2, 1, maybe even 0.5Hz with ease, and controlling the radio by waving my hands around in the electrical field or walloping it.
