The free103point9 TRANSMISSION ARTS ARCHIVE is an online resource as well as a physical Study Center (opening 2012). The Archive includes artists, works, exhibitions, and scholarship spanning early radio experiments of the 1880s up to contemporary transmission works. The book Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves (PAJ Publications: 2011. In association with free103point9.) maps a genealogy in support of the transmission arts genre, and serves as a foundation for the online archive.
free103point9’s visiting artists program AIRTIME provides artists with valuable assistance with which to concentrate on new transmission works and conduct research about the genre using free103point9's resource library and equipment holdings. Visiting artists present their work in conjunction with WGXC 90.7-FM, a creative community radio station and media project in Greene and Columbia counties, upstate New York.
free103point9 organizes EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS including installations, performances, and workshops with artists using transmissions mediums for creative expression. These public programs are presented in partnership with like-minded organizations throughout the world and are included in the Transmission Arts Archive.
free103point9's DISPATCH SERIES is a distribution program for free103point9 transmission artists and collaborators. Releases are live recordings from free103point9 events, thematic compilations, and commissioned artist's projects.
