Absolute Bird for Vocal Ensemble

Hollis Taylor (Composer)

Research output: Non-traditional research outputComposition


Written for The Song Company, Absolute Bird for Vocal Six-Part Ensemble is an 18-minute suite situated at the juncture of music composition, zoömusicology, and the environmental humanities. Absolute Bird is a set of pied butcherbird songs that answer the question, is birdsong music? Commissioned by The Song Company and supported by a grant from the Australia Council, the works do not aspire to improve on birdsongs but rather to celebrate and illuminate them.
