Work Overview

Bestiary is a sonic compendium of grotesque imaginary beasts, that float between heaven and hell. Epic and symbolic animals that are animated in music, twisting and twining around each other, writhing and seething in knotted ornaments with pulsating bodies of skin, fur, scales, feathers, hair, beaks, teeth, claws and nostrils. Drawing you in, they peep around the corner and look at you up and down as they guard the shadows with ferocious jealousy.
