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. Timmings then invited musicologist Stephen Morris to collaborate with him on a project to transcribe the recordings into music. Wetland Senario was performed by the Saturna Singers in 2017 and musica intima (Vancouver) in 2018. It will be presented in France by Les Cris de Paris on April 22, 2023.
