sailing the oceans. far away. and perhaps: without return.
in the first part of the show we're invited by meryll hardt to a sailing trip letting us float over unknown oceans:
"Playlist: Anvers exotique (soundscape) – A life on the Ocean Waves -Etoile Morte – Fascination – Lichtspiel – La dérive d’Ophelia – Genetic Catwalk. All compositions by Meryll Hardt, except 'A life on the Ocean waves' (Henry Russell, 1833) and 'Fascination' (Marquetti, 1932)
All productions by Meryll Hardt, except 'Fascination', played by Joe Loss and his Orchestra, lyrics and interpretation from Meryll Hardt.

When an egg cutter becomes a gamelan, when the docks of Antwerp sound like africa, Meryll Hardt is travelling for us. Far away, so close." [m.h./r.c.]
afterwards, we'll listen for another time to the story of a voyage without return:
"Donald Crowhurst set sail from Teignmouth, South Devon UK, in the autumn of 1968 on a non-stop round-the-world sailing race in his trimaran 'Teignmouth Electron'. One of nine competitors, Crowhurst saw his initial high hopes for fame and glory dashed when lack of time, a poorly equipped boat and inexperience all conspired against him. With the realisation that neither he nor the boat were up to the trip came desperation, which led to a faked voyage, a breakdown and ultimately his death …" [c.m.-r.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
jovica for the space machine, corsica s for some beautiful radiator sounds;
meryll hardt and radio campus, brussels, for sailing away with us;
cathryne morgan-richards and radio soundArt, darlington, for rowing us, in contrast to her unlucky hero, homewards again;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
