Ever since the publication of C.A Witchell's Cries and call-notes of wild birds ( Upcot Gill London 1899 ) composers have striven to capture bird song and relate its complexity using musical notes .....with varying degrees of success.
Perhaps the most celebrated of these works is Olivier Messiaen's Catalogue d'oiseaux , a work for piano composed of thirteen pieces, written between October 1956 and September 1958 and devoted to birds and his second wife Yvonne Loriod.
However Bird vocalization (calls and other sounds) can be extremely complex as some species can produce two notes at once by controlling the two sides of the trachea independently , a polyphonic sonic complexity that remains beyond the capabilities of the humble piano.
Using birds as his sample source,Mie Fielding's Aves Electron brings this experiment with nature right up to date with 6 enigmatic electronic landscapes taking the listener on a journey from sea swept archipelagos to the uplands of Northern Europe.
