Description

7”, 45 rpm vinyl

A recording of mocking birds as they mimic the sounds of the late French Composer Olivier Messiaen’s “Catalogue d’Oiseaux, an experimental composition for piano, based on the songs of birds. First performed in 1959, the “Catalogue d’Oiseaux” comprises thirteen pieces for solo piano, the composition of each based on the song of a specific bird. Nature reflecting art reflecting nature. This record, recorded live at halle fur kunst, Luneburg, May 2002, is a recording of two mockingbirds, who spent the duration of the exhibition listening to “Catalogue d’Oiseaux, playing in the adjacent room. The result is the stripped down recording of the mockingbird’s songs alone in a room in Luenburg, without Messiaen, without an audience.

Signed by the artist.

Track A: 3 min. 5 sec. Track B: 2 min. 33 sec.
