Peter Cowdrey began composing as a small boy, at which time he loved listening to the dawn chorus but was deeply frustrated at its inaccessibility – too fast, too high – and resolutely resistant to being shoehorned into what his upbringing defined as music. After spending a substantial part of his childhood turning himself into an ornithologist, Peter is delighted that recent technology has come to his rescue, making it possible to crack the hidden codes of birdsong. He is on a mission to share them with the rest of the world, especially children. More information about Peter can be found at Opera Unlimited and The Conference of Birds, and in this article by Mark Cocker in the Guardian. His compositions can be heard on his Soundcloud page.
