Nicolas Perret and Silvia Ploner form the duo Islands Songs. They live in Berlin and Paris where they have worked together since 2012. Their interest is drawn to territories that transgress anthropocentric and Eurocentric systems of value and move the boundaries of the unknown. Through a syncretic approach to sound – situated between documentary, sound art and electroacoustic music – and with recorded sound material as a base, they undertake long-term projects that result in radio pieces, sound installations, performances and publications.
