Invisible Sounds

Initially produced for the Design Museum in 2009, this collection of electromagnetic recordings is now being expanded into an interesting online archive of the weird world of electromagnetic sound.

We have been comissioned to curate a radio programme based on the unique quality of these sounds for Framework Radio, to be broadcast in the UK by ResonanceFM.

Here are some of the sounds in the collection which will form the basis of the online archive.

Oyster card.
Bendy bus.
Level crossing.
Underground platform.
Underground train.
Security barrier.
Cash machine.

All the recordings are copyright controlled, but we are always interested to hear about ways to develop the potential of the collection beyond its existence as an archive.
