Celeste Oram is joined by violinists Keir GoGwilt and (remotely, from New Zealand) Alex Taylor in re-enacting the improvisatory practice of Vera Wyse Munro (1897-1966): a pioneering New Zealand radio ham, improviser, and sonic experimenter. During the afternoon, this durational improvisation - featuring violins, starling poems, shortwave radio, and archaeologies of radio history - will be broadcast as a radio installation on multiple channels over low-power radio transmitters, and the public is invited to come prepared with battery-powered radios to tune in to the improvisation in CPMC. In the evening, audience members are invited to gather in the Concert Hall for a culminating séance summoning the ghost of Vera Wyse Munro.
