Note from the composer
This is a graphic score, to be interpreted and improvised from freely.
Michelle Velvin’s Autumn Nest Building is for soprano saxophone, piano, and pedal harp. Velvin says that this unique piece “is the journey of a small bird from hatchling to full flight. The composition begins with the stillness of the nest amongst the treetops. The saxophone intrudes with moments of cracking and tapping as the bird begins to make its way out of the egg. We hear flitterings and flutterings, and poppings and burstings as the wee bird shakes out its feathers and marvels at the birds eye point of view.”
