Birds Amid the Birds (MP3)

Eight minutes of birds and what they sing amid

Eight minutes of unadulterated, unmediated bird song, ripe with chirping, and contextual circumstance. Listen through intently for what is amid the layers of song, the dappling of these percussive, repetetive chirps as they are repeated by countless other birds further and further into the distance, and listen again for everything that happens amid them, the moving of objects, the passing of cars. Over time, a scene takes shape — no linear narrative, and the birds sing on.
