naviarhaiku408 – noon stillness

The haiku shared by Naviar really hit a target in terms of prompting me to create a piece of music.

Earlier this year I saw my first lyrebird at Dunn's Swamp outside Kandos.

I was visiting as part of a residency with RealArtWorks for the Cementa festival and we were working to the brief Disco Concrète.

This haiku reminded me I hadn't manipulated the lyrebird recording, so I tried to create a piece of dance music using some of the bird's phrases.
