Electronic Animisms, Cosmic Diplomacies, Sonic Fabulations, Blasted Landscapes / Abundant Futures, Field Studies.

Nicolas Perret and Silvia Ploner – Islands Songs – live and work in Berlin and Paris. With a syncretic approach towards sound, they orchestrate the uncertainty of the heard, frame perception as doubt and invite participation in the unknown. With recorded sound material as a base, they undertake long-term projects that result in radio pieces, sound installations, performances, and publications.
