Canada goose inspires music

Geese and musicians

This photo shows, from left to right: a Canada goose, with a ring around its neck for identification in research; a domestic goose; composer Henk Odinga; and saxophone player Femke IJlstra.

Translated from Vroege Vogels radio (where there is an audio file of this as well) in the Netherlands:

April 26, 2015

Already several times the Frisian musician and composer Henk Doeke Odinga made tracks for Vroege Vogels, inspired by birdsong. After the wren, the willow warbler and the lapwing, he chose a striking ‘singer’: the Canada goose. Saxophonist Femke IJlstra played the ‘imitations’ of the goose, Odinga himself plays piano in the composition.
