CHIRP (2023)   

for piccolo and 4-channel fixed media 08'

PROGRAM NOTE

CHIRP depicts a sunrise in three short scenes. It explores two birdsong quotations from Olivier Messiaen’s Orchestral work Réveil des oiseaux (1953), the Nightjar, representing the night, and the Woodlark, representing the day. Through various means I try to create a liminal space between Messiaen’s interpretation of birdsong and my own.
