Work Overview

A poem recitation accompanied a prepared field recording of the endemic Black Currawongs of Flinders Island. The recitation is immediately followed by a short trio for violin, viola and shakuhachi. The musicians may then choose to segue into a free-form musical contemplation on the message of the birds.

Poem & music by Anne M Norman, inspired by two residencies on Flinders Island, Bass Strait, in 2014. The currawongs were recorded on an H4 Zoom Recorder on the evening of 23 April 2014.
