Birdswing

 Initially commissioned ot be screened as part of the 'Famous Five Birds' performance this film shot over a day explores  the experience of 'Birdswing'. A day where musicians of all ages gathered together and inspired by Peter Cowdrey  used bird song as the source for musical composition. The process involved slowing the bird songs right down so the individual notes could be identified and then used as inspiration for further creation. Musicians worked together using computer software, voices and instruments. The results were intriguing.
