A little inspiration for a Friday. Céleste Boursier-Mougenot is an artist and composer whose current installation at the Barbican in London has become a bit of a youtube hit. I blame the rockstar who appears at around the 45 second mark.
Trained as a musician and composer, French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways. His installation for The Curve will take the form of a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other instruments and objects. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.
