Work Overview

The blackbird's song of peace for solo flute was composed during March 2003. The work is dedicated to pianist Geoffrey Tozer, who inspired its composition by supplying the composer with the opening 3 bars, an actual blackbird call that Tozer had heard in Tasmania in 1964. The entire work is based on a seven-note scale extracted from the Blackbird's call. The title of the work refers to the fact that its composition was begun on 20th March 2003, the first day of the US invasion of Iraq.
