Voice Of The Bird

Hanna Tuulikki performing her composition, Voice of the Bird for female vocal ensemble, at Glasgow Tectonics Festival earlier this year. Note how they’re all dressed in black with red, oystercatcher legs. This short excerpt is courtesy of BBC Radio 3’s Hear and Now. This piece is at the centre of a larger project, Away with the Birds, exploring old Gaelic tunes that mimic birds, which will be performed next year on the Isle of Canna in the Hebrides.
