two travels into the space of radiophonic memory.
first adrian hall leads us into the head of a old man, retrieving the sounds of the past:
"This an atmospheric work for radio which takes place inside the head, and the history, of an elderly man.
He dwells on moments and places he may have been, and the life in turn of his father.
The work is initially set in the shaving mirror of his home, and touches on mortality,
and the trades of working men everywhere…" [A.H.]
afterwards, we're going down on the airport of ressonoria, the land of recollected sounds:
"Ressonoria (from: res/republic and sonus/sound) is an anti-utopic static story about a country-airport.
The whole political moral is manifested in forcing absurd sound limits, frequency sell, prison for violators.
Anti-utopia aimed at the airport of all sound experimentalists, full of bites – like the name of the airport is called ”frequenz shumen” (shumen is “noisy” in bulgarian). of course in the end the naivity smashes the airport and ends the game." [tkirst]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:

adrian hall and radio one, dunedin, for the acoustic memento;
tkirst and radio cult, sofia, for inviting us to ressonoria;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
