wood thrush

for drumset with electronics (2021) 10'30"

Electronics by Chris Ferree

Movement I is constructed from bird song of the wood thrush native to eastern North America. Each section introduces a new melodic fragment followed by variation (which the bird also does naturally and quite skillfully). Movement II explores timbre and texture and suggests the surrounding wood and glade the bird calls home.

Premiere performance: March 11th, 2021 by Adam Vidiksis as part of the Berklee SPLICE collaboration project.
