Artist Mark Timmings has been listening to the rich soundscape of the marsh near his home for twenty years. In 2013, he began an exploration of this sonic environment by making a series of short field recordings sampling the circadian rhythm or twenty-four-hour cycle of the wetland creatures. He then invited musicologist Stephen Morris to collaborate with him on a project to transcribe the recordings into music. To honour Earth Week, vocal ensemble musica intima will perform Wetland Senario at the Contemporary Art Gallery and Griffin Art Projects on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
