Listen: 70 Zebra Finches playing guitars

June 2015

Stream an extract from artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot's new From Here To Ear installation recordings

French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot makes music for large scale installations where flocks of Zebra Finches fly about the space, landing, perching and nesting on numerous amplified electric guitars placed around the room.

Boursier-Mougenot was featured in The Wire 313, and you can watch a video of his 2010 London Barbican installation here.

From Here To Ear is released on cassette via Important Records' Cassauna imprint.
