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.
Presented as part of the Network Music Festival 2020.
