really nice video report about the piece on itv channel tv @channelonline:

many thanks to @branchage and to all the people who came down to visit. an unbroken record of four entirely rainless installations!

magical times as the @branchage folk walked across the causeway to visit us late tonight. nighttime movements still broadcasting on 1026mw.

high tide, and we’re alone on elizabeth castle island. exploring the 6thC hermitage & neighbouring ww2 bunkers.

… possibly the first 24-hour BBC broadcast of a piece of generative music?

for those in the jersey vicinity, tune in to 1026MW to hear variable 4 on bbc radio, broadcasting continuously for the next 24 hours…

we’re now operational at @branchage, with our first night spent within elizabeth castle’s walls. blustering winds not dropping below 3m/s.

beat the crack of dawn to portsmouth harbour, now at the freight terminal for the channel islands ferry…
