Before the Downbeat

Artist Kerry Morrison and composer Jon Hering have teamed up for what may be the most unusual concept piece of the 21st century…so far.  Bird Sheet Music – A Movement in Three Parts is a 20 minute composition recently premiered at the Tate Liverpool Art Gallery by the aPAtT Orchestra. The piece was assembled after laying manuscript paper on the ground in Liverpool parks.  The birds then “did their business” of composing the piece.  Here’s a link where you can listen to a short segment of the piece.

Now that you know what its about, read the clever title again: Bird Sheet Music – A Movement in Three Parts.

And since this premiered yesterday, it’s history–and thus quite fitting for Weird Music History.
