THE MAN WITH BIRD'S FEET!

THE MAN WITH BIRD'S FEET!

The man with bird's feet; a tune I wrote back in 2019, is a piece for any soloist or any instrument.

 

It was inspired by a most eccentric looking stained-glass window in an old church [in York]. The window is made from odd fragments put together haphazardly, resulting in a man's head being put onto big yellow bird's feet! Very odd indeed.

The thought was what the poor creature would wish more than ever  - to imagine he had 'normal' and more human legs,  to move about more freely with! Only to realise he was still stomping about on those huge yellow bird's feet!!

This item links to my embedded you-tube video attempt with a performance of the piece I did in 2019.

I use my 30 key Anglo squeeze box, and a very loose method of hands through the whole strap! [not thumb outside].  It is played on melody line only as written down.  Watch as that character "Man with Bird's feet" appears every now and again in the video!
