Signal is comprised of works invited from a range of regional, national and international artists and will be deployed on outlet, finetuned's broadcast channel, from May 11th 2007

It became clear as we developed outlet that periods of inactivity - intervals, spaces - would emerge as the channel was populated.

Contrary to the traditional archival leveraging known as repeat programming, off-air muzak, teletext, test cards, etc. we invited 19 artists to create works that specifically engage with these intervals or spaces.

Signal is the resulting exhibition of works that paradoxically address and inhabit this space.

A limited edition CD of the project will be released in late 2007.

Curated by Gavin Peacock and Julian Weaver.


finetuned is an organisation that works specifically with artists who
engage with sound in their practice. It was established in 2005 by
artists who maintain a curatorial and practice-based engagement with
sound oriented work.
