Dial-a-Diva:
call +44 (0) 1452 583 087 to listen to concerts all over the world for 24hrs 08:00 hrs GMT 3rd December Ė 08:00 hrs 4th December 2005

Dial-a-Diva is an event spanning the globe for 24 hours, connecting singers and listeners live by telephone. The project is inspired by a period in history when the telephone was the first broadcasting medium for entertainment. From the 1880s to 1920s phone companies in many countries including France, Britain, Hungary and America set up subscription services connecting opera houses and theatres to a remote audience, listening via the telephone network. Dial-a-diva serves a similar function, but reflects todayís global telecommunications and social networks. The event will start at 08:00 GMT on December 3rd in time for evening concerts in New Zealand and Australia. Then as time moves on, concerts will begin throughout Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and ending with the Americas, 24 hours later. An installation at CCA, Glasgow, Scotland invites visitors to view the hub of operations throughout the project.

Santos-Dumont:
A live audio work by ZoŽ Irvine and guests The audio piece reflects on aspects of the life and achievements of Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. An aristocrat and inventor, moved to Paris at the turn of the last century where he carried out his principal inventions. He was the first man to fly around the Eiffel Tower in an airship. He never patented his inventions, having an open source approach and was a pacifist. He hung himself in Brazil in July 1932 using a silk neck-tie of the sort he used to throw to adoring crowds. He did this after aeroplanes were used to drop bombs on Sao Paulo because he felt personally implicated in the technology that was being used for such disastrous ends. It will be performed as part of CAPTURED at the National Review of Live Art at the Tramway in Glasgow and a recording released by 7 Things (www.seventhings.co.uk) in spring 2006
