song bird

SPOILER ALERT:
Was I the only one who actually expected the birds to figure out how the guitar worked and create a song?
… I have seen FAR too many Disney movies.

The video comes from The Curve Art series put on by The Barbican Art Gallery. Regarding the project they say:

French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways. Boursier-Mougenot’s installation for The Curve, his first solo exhibition in the UK, takes the form of a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a random and captivating soundscape.
