For lever or pedal harp.

This quirky, whimsical solo harp piece by Cynthia Artish uses a buzzy special effect of twine threaded through the strings along with an "artistic tuning" to achieve an almost ghoulish atmosphere! Play differently and do the unexpected -- use Angry Birdz to spice up your repertoire and surprise your audience. Magical and menacing -- in a fun way!

Here's what the composer Cynthia Artish says about this fun piece.
"Angry Birdz" is a unique harp tune. It utilizes an effect where rough jute twine is woven throughout the stringcourse so to create a pizzicato (pinched) effect. The term for adding effects like this is called "prepared" - meaning something is done to the instrument to get a different sound. Our musical term is "prepared harp."

Rough jute twine works best because it won’t slip down the strings. It can be purchased at art, craft, or hardware stores.

The music is 2 pages long, requires E-flats and A-flats, and has no lever changes within the music. Chord symbols are included, but no fingerings. This 6 page PDF also includes a 2 page explanation of how to prepare the harp, and options on playing the piece.
