in this case, two really strange stories are told indeed.
one is about the moon that fell into the river:
"This is a traditional story about when the moon fell in the river, became trapped by bad fairies and rescued by villagers.
I've retold it for Radia including recordings made during the last year, mostly of my children and friends playing in a river.
There's also music improvised by children.
There are some hymns and carols, some of which first appeared as part of my 'swimming in the stream' radio series, using our station's webstream to create loops and effects." [L.G.]
the other about a man who knows how to hide:
"'The Mimo hideout' uses a common approach of slightly processed sound documents combined in a manner that overcomes the actual fact and creates a reality both realistic and artificial." [E.G.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
jovica for the space machine, corsica s for some beautiful radiator sounds;
lucinda guy and soundArt radio, dartington, for falling moonwards;
emilian gatsov and radio cult, sofia, for a hideout with mimo;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
