Graduate composer James Budinich's new EP, "scenes from a pigeon’s wing," released April 22

Listen to scenes from a pigeon’s wing on bandcamp or Spotify.

The 30-minute EP consists of four tracks:
1. Nascent
2. 5x8
3. White Stone (after Agnes Martin), feat. Kate Dreyfuss
4. The Way After

All four tracks are from Budinich's collaborations with Pigeonwing Dance and its Artistic Director Gabrielle Lamb, spanning their three+ year artistic partnership. Tracks 1, 3, and 4 are from the evening-length performance Plexus: a work in knots, and Track 2 is a commission from Works & Process at the Guggenheim.

Written as music for dance, these ambient, minimalistic compositions provide a subtle undercurrent to Lamb’s choreography. At the core of these four tracks is the idea of borrowing – Budinich uses found objects as sound sources, and distorts musical quotations through electronic processes to create new material.
