A Tryst of Wolves is a project by Gavan Kearney & Atay İlgün. Both were drawn together by a shared interest in the uncanny, haunting aspects of Turkish, Irish & English folk musics, psychedelic soundscapes, atmospheric progressive textures and cinematic touches.
Born in Cork and based in the UK, Gavan has been recording/releasing music under the moniker Sand Snowman since 2005 and, in 2008, his work caught the ear of Steven Wilson who arranged a meeting with the Tonefloat label. Consequently Sand Snowman has released 5 albums on Tonefloat, with a further 3 on Reverb Worship and 1 on Beta Lactam Ring records. Gavan has also enjoyed an ongoing and diverse collaboration with Steven, as well as collaborations with Judy Dyble (Fairport Convention, Trader Horn), Bobbie Watson (Comus) and Theo Travis (Travis/Fripp, Gong).
Atay Ilgun, born in Turkey and mostly known as one of the co-founders of the publishing house Wounded Wolf Press is a musician, producer and publisher. He has released a wide range of work under many aliases such Ashberry and was the half of folk duo The Hogweed And The Aderyn which has released two EPs in 2013.
‘Wound & Light’ is the product of two year’s e-mailings and bouncing of stems/files between the two artists, and is a multi-layered piece in both context and sound that simply can’t be pigeon-holed by a genre. Bringing together and blending each artists’ distinctnesses and flourishing on the fertile common ground, the result is eclectic yet integrated and is graced by sterling contributions from Sproatly Smith, Kim Guy, Jo Lepine, Moonswift, Nancy Wallace, Katy English, Alex Monk, James Vella, A. M. Ferrari Fradejas and Santiago Fradejas.
