Midnight to 5:59 a.m.: Free103point9 Transmission Arts overnight

12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Headlines Radio and media news.
12:05 a.m.: Interior Vibrations Performances by Anna Friz, Kristen Roos live from Toronto's Trans-X Transmission Art Symposium. Friz and Roos perform using acoustic field recordings from the Toronto area and electro-magnetic instruments, revealing the otherwise invisible interpenetration of objects and frequencies moving in urban space. Other works by Sarah-Leith Izzard, Karin Senff and Steve McCourt explore interior and/or inherent electromagnetic phenomena and mechanized environments.
• "Short Horizon" by Anna Friz and Kristen Roos. Performance featuring acoustic field recordings from the Toronto area and electro-magnetic instruments. Short Horizon considers the otherwise invisible interpenetration of objects and frequencies moving in urban space.
• "Her Deepness" by Sarah-Leith Izzard. Inspired by oceanographer Sylvia Earle’s record breaking deep-sea dive in 1979, manipulated acousmatic sounds create a ‘cinema of the mind’ without traditional verbal cues. From the surface the listener descends alone into darkness, bioluminescent creatures appear and a psychological transformation occurs as ‘she’ goes deeper.
• "XRF" by Karin Senff. XRF is an electro-acoustic composition that uses recordings of an X-ray spectrometer to create a conceptual model of the sub-atomic interactions that take place during sample analysis, where the action of an electron splitting from its atom is read as a vital fracture of the most fundamental bonds of life.
• "ac-4" by Steve McCourt. ac-4 features sounds that suggest vibration, fragmentation and static interference. The piece also forms a machine/human narrative and draws influence from cinematic montage, as new images are suggested through the juxtaposition of sounds in space and time.
