Chirp & Drift by Kathy Hinde

An illuminated bird orchestra

As the dusk draws in, a flock of moving, glowing musical sculptures begin their night time chorus. These bird-like instruments, perched in a tree, start their morse code chatter generated from the bird-themed street names in Blackbird Leys and real-time tweets from the audience.

Chirp & Drift is created by Kathy Hinde and presented by OCM.  With bespoke software programmed by Matthew Olden. Commissioned by Lancaster Arts and Light up Lancaster 2018.
