Public Monument is a proposal for a radio tower that will remain dormant until the year 2021, when it will broadcast sounds that were recorded during dates and times shown below. (17 Mar to 3 Apr, 2011) During this silent decade -- between recording and broadcast -- the very nature of radio will have transformed as stations are intended to cease broadcasting on the FM band and move to digital transmission.
