Last year I wrote a piece for new music group Ensemble Offspring for their 25th Anniversary concert, Future Retro. It was a great opportunity to work with incredible performers and meet some awesome composers who were also featured in their concert . My piece ‘Avialae’ is scored for the whole ensemble and incorporates the melodies of Five Endangered Australian Bird species. It was my first time using elements of the natural environment in composition, something id like to explore further, particularly in creating awareness for our environmental situation.
