Song of the Human: a work for choir with birdsong

The work, commissioned by Brookield Place, for WNYC’s New Sounds Live included a forty minute choral score performed by The Crossing choir from Philadelphia with an immersive soundscape that included the dawn chorus which was broadcast on WNYC and remained in the main atrium as an installation for two weeks.

The work was inspired by the concept of what we share in music, when we abandon words and the connections that we possibly rediscover when we forget about the labels we attach to ourselves and others.
