Sound artist Frenchbloke, curates 24 hours of previously unheard music donated exclusively for this project by musicians and producers from all over the world. The site-specific transmission will be of specially composed work, forgotten recordings and alternate versions of existing work, none of which have been heard in public before. These sound works will be on air for the duration of the broadcast, then deleted. They may never be heard again. 

Listen in your car, or on a portable radio. Visit The Dark Outside HQ at the top of Murray's Monument for a friendly chat, a comfy sofa and a fantastic view, then sit back, relax and hear the transmission at The Dark Star Lounge deep in the Forest.
