For the Tatlow project, Leith will be collaborating with Merlyn Chipman. Currently he
calls his sound piece a “work in progress.” Recording several of the natural sounds
found in the Kitsilano landscape, "Spica" will be a soundscape that transforms these sounds into a compositional format for playback within the environment of Tatlow Park.
