Hidden Frequency (for Hedy Lamarr) ~ words & music by Pietra Wexstun ~ Hedy was a queen Who graced the silver screen Never would have guessed The knowledge she possessed Gliding into rooms Trailing rare perfumes All would stop and stare Her words would fill the air But who cared what was said Or what was in her head Marveling at the shapes Those lovely lips would make This woman with a past Lonely and miscast Locked in a castle gray Where generals came to stay In another life A rich man's teenage wife She smiled and sipped champagne But a steel-trap brain Captured every word Of secret plans she heard And to Hollywood she came To studios and fame Beautiful and bored Worshipped and ignored While others drank and swam She drew diagrams Spectrum-hopping plans To foil torpedo jams A scheme to win the war Like a player piano score Hidden frequencies New Technologies TV, radio, Cell phone signal flow From this work would grow But few would ever know Hedy was a queen Who graced the silver screen Never would have guessed The knowledge she possessed * * * *


Hidden Frequency (for Hedy Lamarr)
new song by
Pietra Wexstun and Hecate's Angels / A440 Records

Pietra Wexstun and Hecate’s Angels release a new song about actress/inventor Hedy Lamarr. Beneath the glamour and sensual mystique of the iconic Hollywood actress, there was a brilliant mind devoted to technological innovation. Her patented form of " frequency hopping " is used today in Wi-Fi and cell phone technology.

Quotes: "Any girl can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid." - "A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires." - “All creative people want to do the unexpected.” - Hedy Lamarr

Thank you everyone for supporting independent music.
