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 important contemporary artists 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: https://radioamnion.net
The announced artists for the 2021 transmissions are:
Libita Sibungu with Perivi Katjavivi
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.
