Genera are taxa ranked below families and above species. Zizia (Alexanders) is a genus of flowering plants in the carrot family with three species native to North America: Z. aptera (Heart Leaf), Z. aurea (Golden), and Z. trifoliata (Meadow). Zizia benefits the health of soils, insects, birds, and humans with foods and medicines.

Zizia is a group formed by Amber Wolfe Rounds and Jarrod Fowler in Massachusetts during 2018. Rounds was in the post-apocalyptic Americana band O You Villain and Fowler was in the ecological horror duo Species pluralis. Zizia creates experimental music and ecological sound art inspired by biodynamics to collaborate with nature.

Genus means group, clan, or birth. Forty musicians shared birth info and sounds. Genera gathers 36 groups: 34 trios plus two quartets (feat. Charalambides and nmperign).

Thirty-six composite scores were charted and sequenced by date with MuseScore. Scores were tuned with planetary scales, played with seashore sounds, programmed as drum kits, and performed with Ηπ TBX2, preenfm3, and Bastl Instruments microGranny. Sounds were compiled with Audacity and tuned to triads after Pisaura, Asteraceae (Sedimental 2020).

Audio was combined with bee buzzers, field recordings, monophonic synths, planetary tuning forks, tape loops, and voltage controlled acoustic instruments and processed with analog and digital effects. Recordings were made with a RØDE SoundField NT-SF1 Ambisonic Microphone, two Sanken CO-100Ks, and a Zoom F6 Field Recorder.
