Birds play guitar better than most people

For an upcoming show at the Barbican Art Gallery, French artist CĂ©leste Boursier-Mougenot has set up an environment for finches to be musicians. By setting up electric guitars to be the only perches for the birds to stand and play on, they are left with little choice but to make music. What’s astonishing is that the little birds seem to enjoy it and try to enhance the sound more by using sticks. This is a fascinating exploration of the relationship of music to all living things in the world. I would love to see this but unfortunately, I don’t think I will be in London anytime in the near future.
