ix. A Drowned Cathedral
0'0" ~ Seas lost in Snow; 7'38" ~ A Knacker's Yard
Sailor meditates on his journey as he follows his Mother's voice on the wind, taking the route of his father and the lost ship ‘Midnight Mallard’. He passes over a sunken town and imagines the sound as it reverberates infinitely below the waves. As he arrives at the island, a violent storm breaks and his boat is destroyed in the landing. Finding himself wrecked on a strange island full of noises, Sailor sends a message in a bottle to Charlotte and heads inland to explore.
I swallow the Ocean
Dirt in my belly,
Smoke in my mouth hole.
Cradle me in salt water
Sprung and wrung from the womb,
Suckling the bosom of the gloaming.
