Composer's note: "In two movements, Birdlife describes the lives of two different birds: a blackbird and a hummingbird. The music in Movement I describes the actions of a Blackbird hopping around the ground in hope of success in his search for a juicy worm. There are moments of hesitation and cautiousness throughout but it is not until the end, when the flautist blows the final note gradually with more force until it breaks, that the Blackbird finally seizes its prey. Movement II describes the sounds of a Hummingbird whilst in the air. The player recreates the sound of the extraordinarily fast moving wings by singing into the flute whilst playing a different pitch. During these moments there should be a seamless flow of music, however breath marks have been given should they be needed. The flautist will also recreate the sound of a Hummingbird chirping by using percussive ‘slap tongue’ effects."
