This is my largest “traditional” composition to date (nearly all of my works are electroacoustic), so I am looking very forward to hearing how it sounds. Will it be a clucking failure? Computer says, “No”.
(In fact, the place where “Chicken Bits and Bits and Bobs” will be premiered is a stone’s throw from Stepney City Farm, where I have made many visits to observe their chickens and gather inspiration while composing this piece. Some of their chickens look like they are wearing pants. Of course, those pants-wearing chickens make an appearance in my piece. I couldn’t resist their swagger!)
