Chernobyl. A place where clocks are working differently. A zone of death where the march of time seems to be stopped. Yet, life is going on. Another life. A life for which the radiant future of the past has become eternal presence.

RadioGarten : Aussterbende Arten | RadioGarden : Moribundi
In springtime, in springtime… well: not only the birds do sing, but also rich green is growing everywhere. Bewteen all the sprouts and blossoms: who is aware of the ones that are missing? Indeed it seems the extinct and the rare become even more invisible now. Not to mention that, in contrast to the notorious Dodo, their remainders are usually not among the more prominent dust collectors in our museums of natural history. Good reasons to celebrate their memory in our GUNSTradioGARDEN…
And another time we're looking into the sky. Not to count the clouds. But to continue with our observations on drones…
Humm, humm, the Bees? No, not really – this time we won't spend the afternoon in our lovely RadioGarden. Rather, it's just the association with the hymenopterous insects and their hum that leads us to our issues for today: Unmanned flight objects, raising into the air with a different mission…
aut(h)o(r)-poetry radia #450: the death of the authors + radia #187: les forteresses du ciel
ever heard about the death of the author? sure, for there is an ongoing debate in literature studies. however, in a culture traditionally reading authorship and copyright together, there's also a very profane, yet tremendously important reason to literally remember the date: for this one counts (again, literally) for counting towards the day the work will become accessible for the public domain.
hospitals radia #437: electric blue + radia #40: dead by dawn
from birth to death most people will rather avoid hospitals – except for they are working there or come for a visit. yet the hospital is a place where many lifes begin – and end. so does this radio hour.
sonata dawn radia #239 morsonata + radia #40 dead by dawn
a sonata in two movements.
both rather dark.
however, the first one is take from live and about the living:
"Morsonata is the radia edit of a hour long live radio show produced by Mobile Radio for the FON festival in Barrow-in-Furness, England. With Barrow being home to Europe's biggest submarine shed and neighbouring Lake District having hosted Kurt Schwitters for the last years of his life we decided to combine these two influences. Schwitters' Ursonate performed in morse code by one of Barrow's retired submariners is the underlying thread to the show that includes live music and field recordings by FON artists in residence Haco, Susan Matthews, Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann."
the second one, composed by tom wallace, deals with the dead, with
"clinical reports of people (mainly young drug abusers) who die whilst in hospital. The reading of their unfortunate medical histories is underscored with an electronic music composition made from hospital noises. The piece has been played once on Resonance fm, but was hidden in a larger programme due to the sensitiity of the theme." [T.W.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
jovica for the space machine, corsica s for some beautiful radiator sounds;
haco, susan matthews, and mobile radio (knut aufermann and sarah washington) for their dark soata from barrow-in-furness;
tom wallace and resonance fm london for taking us on a trip with the dead;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
Digital Dust Diaries
The project is dedicated to digital dust collection and what might be called a media archeology in the broadest sense; subjects of research include a wide spectrum of (para)phenomena, instable, dead and undead media, their apparitions and their dispersion.
