The idea of Disquiet Junto Project 0288: Interspecies Duet was to use samples of two different animals and have them make music together, with a bonus for adding myself.
I decided to use existing samples I have made over the years, one a recording of frogs in a pond near my house and the other crows deciding to be loud very early in the morning.
In this piece the two animals use their periodic calls to contest one another. I am represented as a collection of percussion instruments, attempting to negotiate the conflict, but in the end one wins over the other.
Green And Black is scored for Cymbals, Wood Blocks, Tubular Bells, Xylophone, Vibraphone and Harp, along with the electronics.
