Somewhere around March 2020 last year I woke to the sound of chainsaws...and was horrified to find the house next door was cutting down a number of trees?... The sound of chainsaws and birds in distress was f*(*&*(&d_+_+_
especially when we woke up in January 2020 to the soot and dust of millions of trees that had burnt in the bushfires? Why do people do stuff like this? Then later in 2020 around November the other neighbours at the back of our place ALSO decided to cut down trees including a huge ancient pear tree, home to many many birds... This was too much so I got up on a ladder and started swearing at the guy saying " this is so ignorant and pathetic , what are you doing man?"...
he said "im building a shed"....what got me most was the wild scared bird calls: “wtf?!?”
“ Hey Bozo! this is my home” and
“um... didn’t we wake up in January 2020 to the soot and red dust blood of 10 thousand burnt trees... was that not enough”??
Then I was asked by Sounds Australia to present a new work for the European Festival "JazzAhead" so I decided to finish this piece and ...what you hear and see is what I submitted for the festival...
