rishiLB1A collaborative artist-led project, between sound and visual artist Lucy Stevens and tabla player Rishii Chowdhury, inspired by birdsong. To fuse field recordings, musical improvisation, printmaking and drawing techniques, to develop a series of new print and sound artworks that represent pitch, repetition and duration of bird vocalisation. Culminating in an group exhibition as part of Passion2Print with Leicester Print Workshop at the LCB Depot, and a video to document the process of the project (created by Bill Newsinger). As part of the project Stevens and Chowdhury will receive mentoring and training from Lyndall Phelps, Geoff Sample, Roopa Panesar and Terry Forryan to develop their practice, enhance skills and professional development. Funded by Arts Council England. Find out more at www.representingbirdsong.wordpress.com.

Lucy Stevens’ artistic practice examines the acoustic ecology of the natural environment, using field recording, digital illustration, performance and printmaking as a tool to visualise sound produced by wildlife, weather and other natural phenomena.
