Baltic Video Podcasts: Marcus Coates


Marcus Coates goes behind the scenes in the making of Dawn Chorus, his latest commission for Baltic Art Gallery, Gateshead.
Dawn Chorus is the latest in a series of films by Coates in which the human voice accurately mimics birdsong. In this multi-screen video installation 19 singers reproduce a recording of a group of wild British birds singing at dawn. Dawn Chorus explores the relationship between birdsong and its parallels with human culture and behaviour.
