Sally Ann McIntyre (Dunedin, New Zealand) http://radiocegeste.blogspot.com.au/

hosts the mini FM station radio cegeste 104.5FM as a solar or battery-powered, exploratory, nomadic platform for site-specific radio art projects, focusing on the airwaves as a revelatory medium for aspects of sited materiality, through an ongoing series of projects and programmes. working with small-radius, site-responsive transmission, location audio recording becomes a key element in the development of a ‘plein air’ radiophonics which works in-situ with the material (sonic and electromagnetic, architectural and social) elements of a site, encouraging explorations of the productive tension between a systematic cataloguing of archival elements, via mapping exercises and the collection and playback of sound libraries, and their deliberate destabilisation through the performative fragility of live transmission. an interest in the history of environmental sound in radio, including the use of 78rpm field recordings and valve shortwave, works in tandem with a focus on phonography as live and temporally situated, a tendency to take field recording back to the field, airwaves dissipating into the air, rather than reify them in the studio.
