Maia Urstads piece is described as an elegy for FM noise.

As standard radio technology moves from analogue to DAB, a whole world of sound will be lost: the strange yet familiar tuning noise found in the gaps between stations. Sound artist Maia Urstad’s performance is a wireless composition in which she makes a live mix of voices and interference noise from radios around the world and sends it to portable radios held by members of the audience. An elegy for a vanishing region of the sound spectrum.
