Check out this video of some finches getting their shred on
as part of the Barbican's forthcoming installation from French conceptual
artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot.
Basically, he put a guitar in a room with some birds and
connected it to an amp outside the room, then recorded the results. This, we're reliably informed, makes art. It's a strangely compelling watch though, TG
particularly enjoyed the part (about a minute in) when one of the birds gets a stick
involved and starts pulling of some Jimmy Page-esque bow madness.
In celebration of this event, TG has compiled this, slightly
rubbish, list of bird-related guitar-band puns: Cluck Berry, Justin Hawk-ins, Jimi Hen-chicks!
