The compilation album Music & Migration really is music for the birds - its 21 tracks inspired by both the miracle of the migratory impulse and the human-inspired peril of avian life today. A showcase for the finest in contemporary post-classical composition, idiosyncratic folksong and pastoral soundscaping, it’s an album with a charitable raison d'etre that just happens to offer 75 minutes of bewitching, immersive sounds and stands as an enticing survey of where left-of-centre music is at in 2010. To put it another way, the first great compilation album of the new decade has arrived.Perhaps it’s an innate empathy with birdsong, or the fact that internationally touring artists enjoy a natural kinship with the notion of ‘migration’, but musicians do seem to have a particular affinity with our feathered friends (just ask The Byrds, Doves, Guillemots, Pigeon Detectives, Black Crowes, etc). So when the nature conservation organisation BirdLife International (through their Born To Travel campaign) wanted to increase awareness about the burgeoning threat to the breeding grounds and ‘air lanes’ of migratory birds across the globe, it seemed logical to ask musicians to be the mediators of the message.
