A Broadcast to the Trees
I’m being let loose for 24 hours with a(legal) FM Transmitter for this :http://www.thedarkoutside.com/index.php/radio-transmissions/ I’m asking people nicely if they have any unheard / unreleased music that they would like broadcast to a forest where possibly nobody will hear it, apart from the trees. Or Deer. Not sure about the goats.
The broadcast to the forest will be around October 6th.
I know it’s very short notice but anything at all, regardless of length will be broadcast to a limited radius in the Galloway Forest. There will be no archiving or streaming and not a hope of it turning up on-line ( unless some madman brings a radio tape recorder to a forest ) Any length 5 seconds - half an hour will be gratefully received, transmitted and deleted. You really have to appear in the vicinity to hear it.
We have several ‘Yes!’ confirmations and wonderful tracks from people you might know’ A list will be finalised nearer the time.
If you aren’t musically inclined but still want to participate, please send us a recording of yourself reading out numbers a la Number Stations. Random numbers, Numbers that mean something to you, anything at all.
+++some people have been having problems with soundcloud’s dropbox - either e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use yousendit.com or wetransfer.com or similar.+++
Also managed to get tweets sent to a specific twitter account name converted to morse code to be broadcast as they come in. (open to all manner of exploitation, I know) - test footage can be seen here : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2713103/morse_test.swf
The broadcasts on the Dark Outside will be running parallel with The Wigtown (where I live) Book Festival, which has a theme of Dark Skies this year.
In true old-skool rave fashion, you might need this.
6th October 12 Noon to 7th October 12 noon -
A712 - any of the laybys and carparks near to Murray’s Monument
You will be listening to The Dark. Outside. 87.7MHz FM
There is free camping at Talnotry (500m south of the monument) Bring a tent, a radio and some batteries.
