"As lockdown continued, I became more aware of my own natural habitat and landscape and began taking field recordings of bird sounds in my local area and in popular forest parks around Dublin and county Wicklow - in an effort to archive those sounds that I had been enjoying and become more intensely aware of. Exploring my relationship with the natural world and biodiversity is something that I had committed to allow myself time for, and engaging with nature through my art practice was how I wanted to spend time exploring that. While researching, developing and presenting a nature-inspired mixed media sound and visual installation with violin as the central voice, I worked to create a unique concert offering for the audience – a solo violin programme with mixed-media which also inspires a new cohort of nature lovers to engage with nature on a local level at Lough Key Forest Park."
