I got PiFmRds to work on my RasPi3.

Note to self:

1. Use Etcher to flash Raspbian.
2. Enable ssh in RasPi using Terminal
cd Volumes
cd boot
touch ssh

3. Boot RasPi3, login via ssh
4. Set new password
5. Set locale
6. Install sndfile library
sudo apt-get install libsndfile1-dev
7. Install PiFmRds
git clone https://github.com/ChristopheJacquet/PiFmRds.git
cd PiFmRds/src
make clean

8. Broadcast from usb audio in at 107.9FM in mono 22050
sudo arecord -fS16_LE -r 22050 -Dplughw:1,0 -c 1 - | sudo ./pi_fm_rds -audio - -rt Hammeradio
9. End broadcast
sudo pkill pi_fm_rds

Fiddled with PiFmRds settings (I want it to display Hammeradio as radiotext (RT) but I’m not sure if it’s working). I also want to run a .sh script on boot to launch pi_fm_rds broadcast (aka. step 8). Currently launching the pi_fm_rds from /etc/rc.local. Tomorrow I’ll try to build a cron startup schedule so that I can spare the Hammeradio preamp from excess stress by powering the system down on gallery off hours (I have to use a preamp to connect a piezo mic to the RasPi). Other useful resources for future tightvnc manual.

Installed Sea Change: In the Scale of a Horse (2017) by Otto Karvonen feat Trans-Horse installation at Vuotalo. The installation consists of a performance documentation, a custom horse blanket with an embroidery with the text “Helsingin kaupunki – Kaupunkimittausyksikkö” and horse-gear used by Toivottu Poika during our HKI-TKU-HKI riding trip in 2014.
