UMFM will once again be broad­cast­ing a por­tion of the 24 hour Wet­land Project to mark Earth Day on Sat­ur­day April 22nd

From the offi­cial Wet­land Project page, an explanation:

The Wet­land Project is a mul­ti­part, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary study of an envi­ron­men­tal sound­scape based on a 24-hour field record­ing. Its inspi­ra­tion lies in a tiny bit of Earth and the sounds that emanate from it: the ṮEḴTEḴSEN marsh in unsur­ren­dered W̱SÁNEĆ ter­ri­to­ry (Sat­ur­na Island, British Colum­bia). For ten years, this more-than-human” sound­scape fea­tur­ing birds, frogs, insects and air­planes has been inves­ti­gat­ed by artists Brady Marks and Mark Tim­mings, and musi­col­o­gist Stephen Mor­ris, and shared with audi­ences around the world in the form of slow radio broad­casts, new media instal­la­tions, musi­cal per­for­mances, an illu­mi­nat­ed score and an artists’ book. Each iter­a­tion of the Wet­land Project delin­eates a dis­tinct path to knowl­edge, a means by which the sonorous source is inves­ti­gat­ed in all of its dynam­ic, life-affirm­ing pow­er.

**UMFM’s broad­casts of The Wet­land Project will take place from 1am — 10am and noon — 2pm on Sat­ur­day April 22nd. **
