As Christmas approaches even unbelievers such as ourselves (mere animals) are reminded of this image of the crucified Christ visible in the marble fireplace at The Hermit’s Cave, Camberwell Green, London SE5 (the best pub in the world), as featured in the RRO’s Larry Shipping sequence.

The RRO was privileged to open the ambitious and impressive Radio Revolten – Internationales Radiokunst-Festival in Halle, Germany, on Saturday 1 October. The above photo by Marcus-Andreas Mohr shows the scene as the VIPs arrived in the Konzerthalle Ulrichkirche where, ahead of Larry Shipping in The Abbey and Saaleaue at Planena (with text in German), the festival curators delivered introductory speeches to a host of radio artists, dignitaries and a wide cross section of Halle residents. The next day the Orchestra performed two works, one in French (Cinquième esquisse pour ascension et descente, with Dinah Bird) and one in Spanish (La conmemorativa lucha de boxeo de Arthur Cravan, with Emilia Portaluppi, Daniel Villar, Rodrigo Rios, and Carmen Gonzalez) – offering what we felt was a truly European repertoire, much of which we did not understand. Follow Radio Revolten on Twitter to keep abreast of news and the programme of broadcasts and live events, which continues all month.
Audio of Larry Shipping in The Abbey and Saaleaue at Planena is here, starting at 36:30.
