critical ornithology

When people go to festivals they drive miles into the countryside and yet often fail to make any connection with the nature around them. Critical Ornithology was a lighthearted attempt to encourage the artees and musos at Supernormal to reconnect with their surroundings by noticing and discussing our feathered friends, then producing human birdsong (via the simultaneous response method) to be incorporated into a later Gertrude and Friends set. Sound recordings can be found at:
Human imitation of a barn owl strongly recommended.
