Immerse yourself into the Wetland Project, a multidisciplinary exploration of an environmental soundscape. Let yourself be transported in the biodiversity of a tiny bit of Earth, the ṮEḴTEḴSEN marsh in unceded W̱SÁNEĆ territory (Saturna Island, British Columbia), and listen to the sounds that emanate from it. A unique immersive sound and colour experience.
For ten years, this “more-than-human” soundscape featuring birds, frogs, insects and airplanes has been investigated by artists Brady Marks, Mark Timmings and musicologist Stephen Morris. A sensory project on the biodiversity of wetlands and their animals, a wealth threatened by climate change.
The Wetland Project respectfully acknowledges that its work takes place on the unceded, ancestral lands and waters of the W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations and within the extended territories of the Hul̓q̓umín̓um̓- and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓-speaking peoples.
