the bird that fell out of the sky
for solo viola
written for Heather Wallington as part of the Psappha - Composing For Viola scheme. 


This began as a little piece which deals with repetition and distortion, echoes, fragments as a way of reminiscing on the past year and its blurred lines of memory, history, global connections and happenings, and how we are all connected, even through the air we breathe. As for the bird, anything can fall out of the sky, but in all cases we must ask: what caused it to fall?
