AFM: A SINE transmission 08 – 8/12/2020


The Observatory Project produce a monthly audio-event for AFM.

For their eighth transmission, The Observatory Project broadcast a live “calibration” of their Adaptable Sound Interferometry Equipment (A SINE).


AFM regularly hosts broadcasts by the Observatory Project. These events feature sound-works made using their generative sound sculpture, A SINE, at various stages of its completion. Here, analogue frequencies are generated and shaped by a series of physical processes, strategies, and tools of observation developed through conversation between the artists and guest scientists. These sonic frameworks are explored live during the AFM broadcasts, often combined with recordings of conversations, observatory spaces, and experiments in the field.

The eighth transmission was be broadcast at 7pm on Tuesday 8 December.

Previous transmissions are available on the AFMixcloud.


The Observatory Project is a collaborative project observes and engages the ways in which scientists and artists operate. The project is headed by Ziggy Lever and Eamon Edmundson-Wells, exploring and expanding the idea of the observatory as a site that contextualises perceptions.

A SINE is an art object, a tool for collaboration using the language of both scientific and artistic processes, a sound artwork, a data reimaginer, and an installation in progress.
