"A Drunken Fingerprint Across the Sky depicts a 'murmuration': a flock of starlings flying together, whirling and dancing across the sky. It is hypnotic to watch and somehow seems to be both random and choreographed. The title is taken from Richard Wilbur's poem Event - also a reflection on starlings flocking. It is dedicated to my father and was written on his guitar..."--Program note.
