BIRDS 08:53



For microtonal ocarina ensemble
For at least 8 performers dispersed throughout a large open space at dusk for at least 10` minutes

Instructions for each performer:
Think of the vocabulary of songbirds.
Think of birdlike chirps and patterns.

Move around the performance space, interacting with others.
You should focus on one-on-one communication.
Play much like you are in conversation.

The sounds you produce should be more melodic then rhythmic.
Think about the sounds and patterns available on your specific instrument.
Think about the way your body interacts with the instrument.
Think about how you interact with others and how your new voice, through the instrument, affects the way you communicate.

Instructions to the group:
Depending on where the performance takes place, planning the progression, the length, and amount of players in the performance may need to happen.
Many spaces such as parks or museums will require the performance to be structured and organized in order to follow their safety regulations.
The group will need to address if the events of the performance develop naturally, with minimal planning, or if the performance will be choreographed.
