Radio Amnion: Sonic Transmissions of Care with/in Oceanic Space

Radio Amnion is a multi-year audio project commissioning and streaming new compositions of affirmation, joy, elegy and lament into, for, through, and with/in the Pacific Ocean - more than 2kms deep. Radio Amnion has invited contemporary artists, musicians, and researchers interested in sending soundings and voicings of care for the primordial / amniotic waters of Earth with transmissions beginning on the full moon of June 2021. Subsequent transmissions occur on the following full moons.

Please see the dedicated website: 

The Radio Amnion Sonic Platform is attached to a submerged cubic kilometre ‘neutrino telescope’ experiment with the SFB1258: Neutrino and Dark Matter Group of the Technical University of Munich which, entangled with the waters, searches out imperceptible cosmic particles. The ‘P-ONE’ telescope is in collaboration with Ocean Networks Canada: a vast underwater oceanographic observatory monitoring marine ecosystem function, deep-sea biodiversity, and multiple geological dynamics across hundreds of kilometres.

Radio Amnion has been exhibited in Unknown Unknowns: An Introduction to Mysteries, The 23rd Triennale Milano; Othering at Dittrich & Schlectreim, Berlin; Becoming Fresh and Salty Drops of Water, Ocean Space, Venice; and as An Oceanic Hearing in Ecological Futurisms at AmbikaP3, London.
