Waves Themselves

This piece was created as a response to Pat Boran’s haiku sequence (or rensaku), which explores the flora and fauna of Dublin Bay’s (North) Bull Island. Boran’s rhyming haiku observe the interplay of bird, human and plant life on the island, and celebrate the delicate balance of a biosphere on the very doorstep of Ireland’s capital city.

An extract of the haiku can be found at https://www.naviarrecords.com/2021/10/14/poetry-in-sounds-bull-island-haiku/

The score is available at http://bit.ly/WavesThemselves
