Andrew Bird: Echolocations
I enjoy when people explore and challenge their passions. This edit -- filmed by Tyler Manson and showcased by Nowness -- depicts Andrew's passion by going to desert locations, practicing violin, in order to create… well, sounds. I truly enjoy the videography, audio and editing that bring this piece together. Besides, I'm a sucker for the strings.
"Ever since I was a child I would test different spaces with my voice or whistle or violin," says acclaimed musician Andrew Bird of his latest project Echolocations, which looks at influence of natural and manmade structures on sound. "Whatever sound you make it's like a giant limb that can reach beyond your fingers and grope the corners of the room." - Andrew Bird - Via Nowness.
