iPod Touch, FM Transmitter, Handheld FM Radio

Transmissions is a four channel audio installation focusing on memory and space.

It features audio recordings taken during the last decade in various spaces in both the city and country. These clips were treated and cut into sections which were then uploaded to four iPods. The sound output was sent to four handheld FM radios via FM transmitters, which allowed for each radio to have its own “discrete” channel of audio.

The result is a lofi soundscape with a pseudo-surround sound effect. Transmissions was created out of an interest in exploring multi-channel sound and generative music without the use of custom software.
