'The Solitudes of Nature' was conceived as a celebration of the life of my g. g. g grandfather, the renowned Scottish ecologist, ornithologist, writer and artist William MacGillivray.
As well as the "backing track" there is an accompanying vocal score for the solo singer or singers.
Composed on Digi Design Pro Tools LE 51, this work consists largely of my sampled microtonal extended vocal techniques. Commencing on and undulating "tsss' insinuating a breeze, it develops gently in a lateral way, insinuating the open spaces and Moore lands my unconventional ancestor loved to roam as a young man in the early 1800s. The poem "The Solitudes of Nature", written by William and interpreted by myself in a melodic form, establishes his human presence in a wilderness inhabited by the birds he loved.
Instrumentation: Voice, electronics, text, bagpipes.
