Programme_Zoe Irvine | a DIAL-A-DIVA medley
DIAL-A-DIVA is a 24 hour global telephonic concert that has taken place twice, in Glasgow 2005 and in Stavanger 2007. The performers were broadcast using the telephone while listeners could tune in live by phoning a freephone number or going to the stream online. The programme of performance went from New Zealand and the date line through Australasia, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas arriving back at the date line 24 hours later. This medley gives a taster of DIAL-A-DIVA bringing together samples from the phonecast and behind the scenes recordings.
