Dawn Chorus: Mimesis And Birdsong
31 January 2019 – 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.
Most of the work here was shown in Oct/Nov 2018 at Drawing Projects UK.
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.
