Proudly presenting my first release with the fine Syngate label
This album is a reimagination of the events on Byrd Station, Antarctia 1965 leading to the vanishing of Carl Disch.
Disch was stationed at the radio noise building of Byrd Station to work on his ionospheric studies. On the morning of May 8, 1965, he departed the radio noise building to return to the main station complex 7,000 ft (2,100 m) away. When Disch had not arrived at the main station within a reasonable time, a search party departed the station to search for him. His trail was spotted but the search party had to return to the station to refuel. Upon their return, the trail had been covered by drifting snow and was never rediscovered. Despite exhaustive searches and measures taken to make the station more visible, including firing of flares and illuminating extra floodlights, Disch was never found.
While he was missing, temperatures dropped to w22;79 °F (w22;62 °C). The search was called off on May 14. He is presumed dead and his body has never been recovered. Memorial services were held in his hometown of Monroe, Wisconsin. He was 26 years old.
