The Night’s Insomnia is a dark, open and achingly beautiful album by Jen Lush that builds songs from the words of 12 contemporary Australian poets from around Australia. Works that evoke the feeling and space that keep us awake in the black hours where the fight of thought comes in from the edges of everywhere. The album included a book of photography which provided a visual arc to the project, like a further reading of the texts in visual language.

Poets include: Cate Kennedy / Kevin Brophy / Esther Ottaway / Ali Cobby Eckermann / David Brooks / Steve Brock / Juan Garrido-Salgado / Jill Jones / Ouyang Yu / Nathan Curnow / Kathryn Hummel / Renee Pettitt-Schipp with an introduction by Cath Kenneally.
