The Book

Dark Sky Preserve is a full colour illustrated book containing all of the text written in and around this project. It will be released by Clay Grouse Press in late 2021.

The book begins with Ian’s essay situating the project.  It’s filled with thoughts about what’s out there and why we need to get closer to the stars.

You can see Ian Ferrier and Louise Campbell performing one of the poems in the book—O My Sisters—at this link.  And here’s the poem :

The poem

The second part of the book presents the scores for all of the music recorded for this project.

Included too are references for anyone who wants to learn more about the night sky or travel to a dark sky preserve.

Inside the back cover you’ll find a download code to all of the music in the Dark Sky Preserve project.

By night they lie on the big deck outside the studio in the dark. And watch the Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way turn in the sky overhead.
