Radio Show Broadcasts Unheard Music In A Remote Forest

Over the course of 24 hours, a radio transmitter will broadcast unknown music in the woodlands of Scotland.

This August, a radio transmission from the Galloway Forest Park, in Scotland will play 24-hours of never-before-heard music to an audience of trees, and hopefully human listeners too.

The FM transmitter will be located in a part of the woodland park designated as a ‘Dark Sky Forest’ — only awarded for areas with low levels of light pollution that allow for optimum star-gazing. Set up at the top of a hill, the transmitter, solar-powered batteries and an MP3 player will be used to broadcast the music to receivers up to five kilometers away. There will also be portable radios lining the path up the hill, encouraging anyone in listening distance to follow the music.
