Modern-day Magellans with a special mission – the book “Sailing Conductors” tells the story of two friends who met at a sound technology course in Berlin, and decided to start an unusual expedition to collect and create unique music from across the planet. Benjamin Schaschek (28) went to Australia to finish his studies, but soon noticed that his return flight ticket would expire before finishing his course. Instead of buying a new one, he invited Hannes Koch (26) to sail back to Germany with him. Despite only having small jolly-boat experience, the men managed to sail around the world for (so far) three and a half years.
