Outline

An interactive device that allows participants to practice bird songs as a new language and experience its complexity. When participants try to imitate a bird song, their accuracy is graded by a computer. The work is part of a larger installation from the research project “Mapping the Acoustic Network of Birds” directed by evolutionary biologist Charles Taylor. It also attempts to raise awareness of how birds and their acoustic richness have disappeared from cities.
