I loaded this site and it just naturally fit in. I got Hawaii airport. I just felt like I was in the tower. The music was just how I was playing but now I’ve got beautiful lofi air controller audio. Thank you very much
edit: I see you can request them since they are added manually
I understand the feeds come from LiveATC, which has a FAQ answer explaining why UK feeds are legally forbidden . Anyone happen to know why there are no German/Austrian airports on LiveATC , is it a similar legal issue?

I was a huge fan of Daft Punk and I bought that disc day one.
Well, I totally hated it when I first listened to it.
It was probably too different from their previous work.
Still, I listened it again, not that terrible. Again, actually pretty cool. Again, incredible. And after multiple listenings, I finally accepted that, at least to me, it was just a masterpiece and I totally missed it.
And now, already a decade later, I have a strong feeling of nostalgia every time I stumble upon it and it’s one of my favorite music albums ever.
Still, I cannot describe why I love it so much. It just talks to me.
I wouldn’t even recommend it nowadays because if you are like me, you’ll not appreciate it by listening to it once on Spotify.
Or maybe I’m wrong, it’s just awesome and I was the one having a block. In this case, I’d recommend you to avoid listening to this track or this track but go for the full album because it was totally made like a full art piece.
And it’s actually a nice album to listen in background.
My favorite track is almost certainly Moroder. What a thing to gift us: a brief autobiography/biopic from the grandfather of electronic music himself, explaining how he came to create the ancestor sounds of what we're listening to... and then on top of which some of the goddamn best drums (and real drums, to boot) and just an absolute banger.
Couple that with Nile Rogers appearing multiple times with some of the best guitar licks... the genius of Contact, building this narrative of an alien from Apollo 17 recordings... and the beautifully textured... almost "chunky" Motherboard. Man, this album is great. I really love Daft Punk.
First listen of new albums, it's a no.
Then with each and every listen, it gets better and better.
I have no idea why that is.
Says the source that seems to be https://www.liveatc.net
>4) Since there are only limited numbers of connections available for streams, and because the site is funded through advertising and donations, you agree to consult LiveATC.net prior to linking directly to any of the audio streams. When you do link you agree to give credit to LiveATC.net with a prominent link to www.liveatc.net.
Why jump to that conclusion? She could have consulted with them while building this.

So I don't know if we can assume either the music or the ATC stream is being used without permission.
Great work, love this!
The segment on alternate routes (avoiding 5000m mountains, and staying below 3000m?) in case of decompression was quite interesting. Of course, in darkness and bad weather, it sounds terrifying.
How would something like this she made? I had a similar idea (but mixing entirely different types of streams) and did a whole bunch of searching and couldn’t find a way to mix two external streams.
Do you record/buffer the streams and write local chunks to stream from? Or is it more like “bounce this stream but mix some local audio files over it”?
You could also make a custom audio widget that played two streams at once and the local audio mixer will handle it.
For the recording, with the ground transmitter stationary, it could be separated by one receiver shilded to look at only the ground transmitter, and a second omni-directional one for anything flying.
Edit: Now that I switched to the tab I could see for brief second a "Music could not load, try refreshing" message flash. After a brief moment it started playing again.
In fact, I love it so much that I could not resist trying to implement it with two running mpv instances: https://github.com/phazus/lofiatc.sh
If you want to stream to liveatc, they’ll work with you to establish a receiver that ships packets to their reflector. Very low bandwidth, just have to have a spot to host the RF gear.
edit: how important would antenna placement be? I assume it's not just like receiving an commericial FM music station signal in a building eh? I could mount it on the roof; but setting up a big mast would be an issue landlord wise! "As the crow flies" I'm fairly close to the airport
The tower and anyone on the ground are usually the trickiest signals to receive unless you're close to the airport.
