September 11 is considered the date of foundation of the A.S. Popov, which appeared back in 1872. This year the "birthday" will be marked with a special sound performance prepared by two museums - A.S. Popov Central Museum of Communications and the St. Petersburg Museum of Sound.
It is considered that a signal can be any physical process, the parameters of which change (or are found) in accordance with the transmitted message. In the performance "RK1A" the musicians work with a completely different model: the signal here is also the process, the parameters of which change in accordance with the perception of the message.
A.S. Popov Central Museum of Communications regularly goes on the air under his own callsigns RK1A. Transmission is carried out both by voice and Morse code. At the time of the performance, radio communication session from the Museum of Communications will take place, and it is this signal that will be received on the radio in the Museum of Sound and processed in real time.
