Infraordinary FM (2023)
by Daniel Jones and Seb Emina, a commission from Lab'Bel Laboratoire Artistique.
Infraordinary FM is a radio station that delivers reliable, real-time information about quotidian happenings around the world.
Tides, aircraft movements, pinball scores, weather conditions, lost and found items, bird sightings and other ordinary events are gathered from over 150 countries and reported live in the form of spoken bulletins.
The station is automated and perpetual, and presented by a pair of state-of-the-art synthetic voices, kindly provided by ElevenLabs.
