A residing musical exhibit on the Montreal Museum of Tremendous Arts will set 70 zebra finches unfastened in an aviary, and the one perches are the strings of 14 electrical guitars and bass guitars.
When the birds land, they create music that is performed by amplifiers stationed across the aviary.
French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot calls it residing music, impressed by a reminiscence from his childhood.
“Wanting by the window, my feeling was that I need to make music from these birds on the wire, and 30 years later I did this,” he stated.
Boursier-Mougenot additionally toured the residing artwork exhibit round New York, Paris, London, and Milan. For the Canadian exhibition—proven above—he borrowed the birds from an area aviary; for the preliminary exhibition, he caught all of the birds himself, then allow them to go ten days later.
