Sheet Music: Score
Where butterflies sleep : for 2 octave crotales, 4 players / Mark Pollard.
by Mark Pollard (2018)
Where Butterflies Sleep is inspired by a project worked on at the butterfly house at the Melbourne Zoo and research into how butterflies perceive sound and relate to colours. Butterflies have tiny ears that respond to high and low frequencies in different ways. When high frequency sounds are heard they generally remain at rest hidden by colours (red, yellow, purple and orange being the most popular) This is possibly related to perceiving the high frequencies of predator bird song. They will fly away when hearing lower frequencies possibly responding to the lower pitched sound of bird's wings in motion. This work is built around the butterfly remaining at rest higher frequencies and blending of colours.
