With layered strings, vocals, percussion and synths, Hirondelle reimagines the vast intercontinental migration of the graceful barn swallow and simultaneously summons the expansiveness of a solo bike expedition across the United States. I composed this piece in 2015, and in 2020 created a new version for solo cello and playback.
