Dawn Chorus: Mimesis and Birdsong
31 January 2019 to 7 March 2019

In this show, I approach the experience of the dawn chorus in a number of different ways, collaborating with printmaker Alex Charrington (Charrington Editions), composer and musician Bennett Hogg and natural history sound recordist Geoff Sample.

Working from Geoff’s sonograms of individual bird recordings, I drew a series of notations that bore a superficial resemblance to handwritten "neumes", a medieval form of musical notation. Together with Alex, I subsequently developed a patterned palimpsest of sound.
