Special Broadcast Episode April 22, 2021

Wetland Project Slow Radio Broadcast (pt. 3)

4:00pm - 11:59pm

Artists Brady Marks and Mark Timmings invite you to connect to the 24-hour circadian rhythm of the ṮEḴTEḴSEN marsh in unceded W̱SÁNEĆ territory on Saturna Island, British Columbia. The beautiful and complex soundscape features birds, frogs, airplanes and more. The broadcast engages listeners in real time and promotes a deeper awareness of, and a re enchanted engagement with, the living environment. The slow radio format creates an immersive sonic space to contemplate what it means to be human in the “more-than-human world.” The artists hope that it will also encourage listeners to reflect on what it means to listen in contested indigenous lands. The broadcast is a call to action—to advocate for environmental protection, support the settlement of land claims, hold leaders accountable for the climate catastrophe. And save a wetland near you.
