Playing never-before heard music only once in the middle of nowhere, 'The Dark Outside FM' project hopes to reconnect people with nature. Artists Stuart McLean, Robbie Coleman and Jo Hodges are collaborating to broadcast a full 24 hour radio show to an audience of plants. After playing the new music on The Dark Outside FM, the artists plan on deleting the files so that they will never be heard again. As a result, finding the radio signal is the only way to ever hear The Dark Outside FM's music.
Adventurous music lovers can venture out into the Galloway Forest Park in Scotland this September to catch some rare tunes. Hand-held radios will be placed within range of the broadcast so that anybody in the area can listen in.
