On board of his vessel “Endurance” are: 69 huskies (sledge dogs), a gramophone, a bicycle – and a stowaway, 17-year old Merce Blackboro.

By combining and varying different pitches in his richly coloured voice, he creates curiosity and excitement. Each CD begins and ends with the sound of the ocean waves, underlined with music.
