6.30pm – Pre-concert talk & Exhibition: How can the arts interact with a Natural World in decline?

Chaired by environmentalist, author and curator John Fanshawe, this discussion between artists and environmental scientists will examine how the arts have drawn inspiration from the environment and how they can continue to interact in a changing world.

John Fanshawe – Birdlife International Xavi Bou – Photographer Ewan Campbell – Composer Marsyas Trio

7:30pm – Marsyas Trio Concert

The London-based Marsyas Trio will present an immersive multimedia concert experience featuring different composers’ responses to the natural world. The dark and remote Chapel at Churchill is transformed through sound and light to emulate the underwater experience of George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae. The concert also features the premiere of Ewan Campbell’s collaboration with Spanish photographer Xavi Bou in a series of short movements written directly onto images of birds in flight.
