Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds

Paul Kelly, James Ledger, Alice Keath & Seraphim Trio / Music composed by James Ledger and Paul Kelly

In a new song cycle commissioned by the 2019 Adelaide Festival, Australian music legend Paul Kelly and leading Australian composer James Ledger have written thirteen new songs and soundscapes inspired by birds. Using the words of John Keats, Thomas Hardy, Emily Dickinson, Judith Wright, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Gwen Harwood, A.D. Hope and others, each poem is its own world - delicate and intimate at times, colossal and soaring at others, with all states in between. For two performances only, Paul Kelly, and Alice Keath join Seraphim to create a unique marriage of electronics, acoustic instruments and the human voice, celebrating winged creatures from the barn owl to the nightingale, from the thornbill to the falcon, from the magpie to the swan.
