Recorded, mixed and treated for two exhibitions at Sheffield’s Festival Of The Mind.

Parts 1 and 1.1 are for unique audio-visual exhibition in collaboration with photographer Shaun Bloodworth, recreating the bird song of a dawn chorus. The full video will be released shortly.

Parts 2 and 2.1 are perfect loops used for an installation in the Millenium Galleries, Sheffield. The speaker system recreated the outdoor environment for visitors while walking through the gallery.

Background
Have you noticed we don’t hear the dawn chorus anymore? Techno legends The Black Dog have recreated it, using recordings of birds, with visuals by Shaun Bloodworth. The science behind the exhibition, supplied by bird expert Professor Tim Birkhead, is disturbing: Britain’s bird population is in decline.

Tim Birkhead is an award-winning educator, researcher and author of several books on bird behaviour. Ambient techno pioneers The Black Dog are among the defining voices of the Warp generation. World-class photographer and filmmaker Shaun Bloodworth is a prolific documenter of the international dance music scene.
