Available for immediate download
The music for 'bird, songs, seas' was initially a quasi overture for The Convict Monologues, imagining convicts arriving on Australia shores, with the sound of unfamiliar birds and the almost-memory of old folk tunes barely audible above the sound of waves.
This excerpt and arrangement of 'bird, songs, seas' was made for Anthony Albrecht and Simon Slattery when they were developing their musical project 'Where song began', inspired by ornithologist Tim Low's book of the same name. 'Where song began' is a musical celebration of Australia's birds and how they shaped the world.
