This work is the first movement of a three movement string quartet, called Urban Songs. This piece investigates the reality of living in an urban environment.

Bird-Esk by Hollis Taylor

Score and parts

String Quartet, c.11'30
Australian pied butcherbird vocalisations often boast a compelling rhythm and raw energy reminiscent of certain jazz styles. Lively syncopations and phrase endings on weak beats are common in their sound repertoire. This work builds on pied butcherbird themes for rhythmic exploration.
