today we'll take a trip to the zone. no no man's land. but nevertheless lost.
first we'll join an expedition with no return:
"three friends search for an ominous radio station that transmits number sequences with mysterious messages. told is the expedition’s story through an area bearing names such as 'path of the invisible hand', 'stalin highlands' or 'post-modernist cave labyrinth'.
the characters – student, entrepreneur, skilled worker – lose their life or at least get lost under unpleasant circumstances…" [F.H.]
history exhaustion is the audio transformation of an installation francis hunger created in 2009, focussing on the subject of 'verausgabung' (exhaustion).
with the voice of richard cotter.

radia # 273: "history exhaustion" by francis hunger is a contribution by radiator x for radia art radio network
premiere week on radia: june 21-27, 2010
afterwards we walk military landscapes in different countries from alaska to new mexico:
"The sonic resonance that surround current and former military landscapes have intrigued artists working with sound. Memories of power and technology settle as an uneasy layer in these environments, creating opportunities for artists. I intend for this to be an on-going series, hopefully weaving in writings, interviews and inviting collaborations." [J.C.]
"military landscape" is a radio project curated and produced by jay cotter. with pieces by richard lerman and louise k. wilson.
