WASHINGTON – The happy babbling that entertains parents as their babies try to mimic speech turns out to have a parallel in the animal world. Baby birds babble away before mastering their adult song, researchers report in Friday’s edition of the journal Science.”
A Walk in the Park was written as a performance text to be spoken aloud between the presentation of five recorded and/or ‘live’ musical pieces. The most recent performance was presented Nov. 9th, 2007 at the Pozen Center in Boston as part of an international Art and Environment Symposium sponsored by the K2 Family Foundation. There are four sections of spoken text. Electronic music (A Common Ancestor) was presented between each of the spoken sections. Two Interludes for Speaking Voice, Violin and Piano and Haiku for Speaking Voice and Violin were performed ‘live’ at the beginning and end of the program, respectively.
The content of the text reflects aspects of culture, science, and the environment.
