Nigel Bunn helped me collect the field recordings. Our sonic mapping exercise took in various indoor and outdoor, cultural and natural environments. Along the way I also talked to a church organist about trains, a publican about the artist Ralph Hotere, children exiting a school bus, and the Chicks Hotel proprietor Hector Hazard about his attempts to 'unlearn the guitar'.

the inaugural radio cegeste live micro radio performance on 12th Dec 2008 involved creating a site-specific radio programme for the iconic, historically notorious Chicks Hotel, in Port Chalmers, Dunedin. a playlist of environmental and anecdotal field recordings collected around the Port Chalmers area within 24 hours of broadcast were played back via itunes, handmade Mini FM transmitter and hand-held radio receivers.
