    Avialae - composed by Cassie To, Performed by Ensemble Offspring, film by Rowena Crowe.   Avialae was a serendipitous project for me. For some time I had been collecting children’s drawings of birds for a project that had been brewing in my mind. When Ensemble Offspring approached me about the Offspring Bites project I was immediately drawn to Cassie To’s Avialae not knowing her composition was concerned with the disappearance of bird song after species extinction. Discovering her ideas behind the composition I came to interpret it as a kind of sonic witness.
