From here to ear

From here to ear 01 THUMB.jpg

Visitors standing in he aviary set up with 70 birds and 14 guitars.

IDEA: Transliterations of natural structure, aural identification of certain realities which are not seen for eyes.

WHAT: The 19th version of an organic installation specifically conceived for the spaces of the Contemporary Art Square of the Montreal Museum Of Fine Arts, transformed into a gigantic aviary. Resulting in a sonic arrangement featuring seventy zebra finches, electric guitars, amplifiers and cymbals. Seventy songbirds fill a room littered with 14 electric guitars on stands. As the birds perch on the strings of the guitars, they create a cacophonous song of pre-recorded rock, punk and heavy-metal chords.

WHY: The artistry lies in the disjointed music as a product of living.
