All spring (2004) was commissioned by the Canada Council of the Arts for the Motion Ensemble, and is based on poetry by Canadian poet Rae Crossman, with whom I have collaborated on a number of projects. Eacb poem mentions a different type of bird, and the music reflects both the sounds and the emotional symbolism of each bird.
