"They own the night" is a piece by Islands Songs in collaboration with David Mollin and Salomé Voegelin.
Mollin and Voegelin work together in a practice that focusses on invisible connections, transient behavior, and unseen rituals.
For YNK they wrote and performed a text representing their engagement with the possibility of form, that of animals, their depiction and classification, and that of the voice that seeks to capture them but remains itself fleeting.
The sounds of the composition come from the Ocean Networks Canada, an initiative of the University of Victoria and union of ocean observatories. Special thanks to Martin Scherwath.
