A dear friend, Dominique, recently did research on fig wasps and created a documentary to present their findings. After a conversation in which they described to me their research, I was intrigued. I wrote “fig tree” in the wake of their words. I was picturing myself exploring a small grove in the evening, watching the tiny insects go about their lives as the sun begins to set and the moths start to appear.


A few weeks later, this dear friend asked me to to compose some music for their documentary. It was my first time attempting to score a film like this and I was excited to try my best. My tiny guitar was tuned to Bb, G, C, F, A, D, the same tuning as “fig tree.” These are a few excerpts from the soundtrack.


Thank you to Dominique Vassie for her continued support, friendship, and allowing me to use her illustration as the album cover. All music by birdfeeders (Conor)
