Ad Wammes, composer
Compositions: Vogels
Vogels (birds) was commissioned by Kunstgebouw Rijswijk. My assignment was to make 3 compositions based upon, inspired by, sounds of birds. The composition process was filmed and put on DVD to inspire primary school children to make their own compositions using all kinds of sound sources. For the Bewicks Wren song I used the song that the Bewick wren sings. Part of it I used melodically (mostly transposed two octaves lower) and part of it I used for soundscapes. I owe many thanks to Mr. Satie for providing the inpiration for a comfortable bird nest.
