EXTINCTION

 

 

EXTINCTION is a work that laments the death of Australian bird species. This string quintet, performed by BOLT, and composed by )-(u||!c|<, has an audio score that is verbal text and birdcalls heard by the BOLT musicians through headphones. Resulting textures elide between brutal noise and bird song.

 

As a staged work, the experience is presented concert style, but in elegantly designed low light, emphasizing the listening experience.
