This really interesting piece gives us new and fascinating aural experiences. It makes full use of extended techniques to take us to the strange world of the crow, so it's comforting to see a time-signature, bar-lines and the clear notation which will open it up to less experienced players of this musical genre. The electronic part is also written conventionally despite its weird and wonderful sounds so it's easy to follow. If you're looking to explore this type of music you will definitly enjoy this!

From the Publisher

There are many crows, they are black and go “argh! argh”. They hop around like gangsters and often look pretty bedraggled, with missing feathers and scrappy wings. I think they’re great. They are clever, mysterious, confident, sociable and do a lot more than just “argh! argh!”. They can learn words, much like a parrot, and are well known for their use of tools in order to get at food. I wanted to use the untypical sounds of the crow and the flute; historically composers have used the sweet sounding birdsong and the sweet sounding melodies on the flute. I thought it was about time some other birds were given a chance at music. This piece combines the sounds of the flute with those of the crows in order to portray the liveliness, hidden beauty and multifaceted nature of the crows.
