We all love when birds make beautiful sounds while singing. But what if these tiny cute creatures get their claws on some instruments?
French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot created an amazing sound project that involves 70 zebra finches and a room full of electric guitars. The strings of the guitar appear to be no different to the birds than the branches of a tree. As the birds land, nest, peep, and peck, they emit music that creates an ambient concert of sorts.
The project, named “From Here to ear”, has made its way to museums around the world in various repetitions since its beginning in 1999.
Boursier-Mougenot told CBC that he’d been imagining this project for a very long time. “Looking through the window, my feeling was that I want to make music from these birds on the wire, and 30 years later I did this…“
