Ros Bandt: Raptor (2014)

Raptor is an investigation of the flight of the Acquilla Chrysaetos, the Golden eagle taking us over the Joshua Tree Biosphere where it was recorded, to Beaver Creek. The granulated eagle calls are stretched to represent the psycho perceptual orientation of the eagle, solitary, looking down over the land. The harmonic drones of the bowed tarhu within this sound field position the eagle’s eye, creating a moving point through which we can share the dynamic movements through these spaces as it rides and tips the relationship between the planes of the dihedral angles intrinsic to its flight. The slow strength, power and control of these magnificent birds can defy our aerodynamic understanding as they sculpt the biosphere. Length 15 minutes. Thanks to Jim Atkins.
