Welcome to the website of Sydney-based music composer Corrina Bonshek. Listen to my birdsong inspired music and find out about upcoming events.
Since moving close to Sydney’s Centennial Park I’ve become a bird enthusiast and recorded hours of bird calls including the songs of Rainbow Lorrikeets, Kurrawongs, Corellas, and Butcher Birds. Their cries and calls have made their way into my compositions, including my music composition As Small Birds Play.
As Small Birds Play in Centennial Park, January 18-27, 2013
See Willy Wagtails and Fairy Wrens dart across the big screen and then disappear into a serene landscape in As Small Birds Play, a short film inspired by Centennial Park and created by composer Corrina Bonshek and filmmaker Rachael Jones.

Filmmaker Rachael Jones was ‘led’ by the music in her creation of the film. Rachael says. ‘Before I even touched the camera, the music had instilled me with beautiful imagery that I then had to work out how to capture. The park did the rest. I found those moments of playfulness with the birds, stillness and meditative beauty that being in those surroundings can give you.’
Find out more about how the film was created in the ‘making of a music film‘.
