Birdsong

Jun 19, 2019 | Musings, Sound

Birdsong…will it form part of the sound-installation? Or is it perhaps a different project all together?

Not sure what it is about birds, did I ever really listened to them?

I was always sure of them being there and all of a sudden I feel alarmed that perhaps one day soon they might not be around anymore.

I listen to birds and I am not sure which birds they are, I recognise a blackbird a robin and a crow for sure, seagulls also.

I listen and draw, focusing on the rhythm and the richness of sound, if it is round and soft or a little sharper…

I overlay my marks if the song is repeating itself.

I am finding myself being experimental, open and playful.

Enjoying to be inspired by a new discovery ‘the voice of birds’.
