NETWORK MUSIC FESTIVAL: Wendy Reid - BIRDS WITHOUT BORDERS


Bird Ensemble #1: Lulu (African Grey Parrot), Wendy Reid (violin), Krystyna Bobrowski (glisglas), Brenda Hutchinson (long tube instrument), Aurora Josephson (voice), Ron Heglin (tuba, voice).

Bird Ensemble #2: an international group of musicians: Thea Farhadian (Berlin), Barbara Golden (Nova Scotia), Barbara Held (Barcelona), Silvia Matheus (Brazil), Biggi Vinkeloe (Sweden)


Composer Wendy Reid has recently been exploring online networking specifically with teaching and performing as a result of the need for a ‘new paradigm for human interaction' as a result of Covid-19. This is a re-invention of her most recent site-specific work Ambient Bird 433 into a global online performance in which the location is the world.

This re-invented sequel/online version, which is composed for African Grey Parrot and two open ensembles, has the same description as Ambient Bird 433: an interspecies sonic landscape/ambient environment which reflects a philosophy of connecting with all living creatures and the environment.

The ensembles include experimental musicians of various and combined approaches: traditional, improvisational, acoustic/electronic /ambient, human/non-human.
