Description of the project by The Dark Outside
The Dark Outside came about in 2012 after The Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park's Artists in Residence that year, Robbie Coleman & Jo Hodges, basically gave me an FM Radio Transmitter to do what I liked with for 24 hours. I came up with this instead - 24 hours of music that people had never heard before broadcasting from a place where nobody was listening ( this has since changed as people turned up to listen )The broadcast airs from Murrays Monument, a 50 foot granite monolith upon a hill called Big Doon in Talnotry which is in the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park. This site was chosen specifically as FM works from line-of-sight, which hems the listener ( due to the geology and landcape ) into a specific area where you really have to travel out into a forest to listen to the radio.
