Things are not always as they seem. Obvious, perhaps, yet Over Lunan sheds light on some of the hidden connections between Lunan and places far afield, in both time and space… The Over Lunan team is pleased to release a new radio piece, also called Over Lunan, which is an accompanying piece of work to the live event in the dunes. It was broadcast on Radio North Angus, Resonance FM Resonance Extra. Both the live event and the radio piece shed light on some of the hidden connections between Lunan and places far afield, in both time and space. In 2015 the journalist Charlie Ross spent a summer in Lunan Bay on the north east coast of Scotland, investigating the area's history and mythology, and the natural forces that have shaped this coast through millennia. He died before his work was complete, but his discoveries, including Lunan's connection to the ancient cultures of the Middle East, are now brought to life posthumously in this new radio piece, produced by Steve Urquhart and directed by Purni Morell, with music and sound design by Andrew Knight-Hill. Although it was not necessary to listen to the radio piece before coming to the live event in Lunan Bay, ticket holders were encouraged to tune in to get a greater understanding of the research work Charlie Ross had undertaken in the local area. Those who missed the live event are invited to enjoy the radio piece as a standalone piece of work exploring the fascinating connections between two beautiful parts of the world, each conveying a fascinating and little-known history.
