Songbirds of Europe and North America (2004)

from Symbiotica (a cross-cultural mixup)

(recorded segments from Milton Babbitt Phonemena - Judith Bettina, Soprano - Milton Babbitt, Computer Sounds, and Luciano Berio Sequenza III - Luisa Castelliani, Soprano solo) 

Various bird songs from America and Europe were mixed with two musical tracks of classic 20th century vocal music from American composer Milton Babbitt and Italian composer Luciano Berio. I separated the two musical tracks into short phrases or segments, numbered them, then rearranged the segments and inserted silences between them. The similar musical intonings of the human voice and birdsongs remind us of our shared ancestry with all living creatures.
