Birds of a Feather 3​-​4

by Darren McClure and The Green Kingdom



''The swans are always in my thoughts and give splendor to (my) life. (It’s) strange to learn that nothing in the whole world affect me - nothing in art, literature, or music - in the same ways as do these swans and cranes and wild geese. Their voices and being.” Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

The role of birds as muse, as musical guide and inspiration has been well documented in classical music, from Mozart’s pet starling to Beethoven’s birdsong filled Pastoral Symphony and Sibelius’s swan hymn to Messaien’s birdsong compositions.

Birds of a Feather celebrates the role of birds in ambient music, and the beautiful fragility of birds more generally.

This is the second set of two EPs in the series; The Blue Heron by The Green Kingdom and The Black Kite by Darren McClure.

Birds of a Feather will be a series of 12 three inch cds released as pairs in runs of 100 over the next year. Each cd comes in a handmade sleeve and contains a statement from the artist.
