Based on a pied butcherbird's nocturnal song recorded west of Alice Springs (5:20am, 27 August), 'Owen Springs Reserve 2014' belongs to the twenty-first century to be sure, but the music sung by these birds is ancient, extending back millions of years. Although they may share some phrases, each bird has its unique songs that develop and transform from season to season. Paired with the original recording, a degree of what we may describe as improvisation pertains to each performance and this quality of flexibility is key to our oeuvre of birdsong works.
