Product details

'Lorikeet Corroboree' was written for Ensemble Offspring in 2015 during a residency at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. It was inspired by the beautiful rainbow lorikeets that visit me every morning and who dance after a feeding frenzy. This led me to many hours of documenting birdcall and transcribing melodic fragments derived from not only lorikeets but also other Australian birds including butcherbirds, magpies, and even a nightingale (also a musical reference to Lamorna Nightingale, Ensemble Offspring's flautist). There is much melodic dialogue between the parts in 'Lorikeet Corroboree' just as birds in the forest do not sing in isolation but in melodic collaboration, by answering each other's musical sentences.
