Chirp & Drift by Kathy Hinde
Friday 20 & Saturday 21 November 4.30pm-8pm
An illuminated bird orchestra
As the dusk draws in, a flock of moving, glowing musical sculptures will 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.
Watch the live stream of a flock of moving, glowing, musical sculptures with their gentle tones and harmonies from their tree roosts. The live film will be available here, from 4.30pm-8pm, over the festival weekend. Between these times you can interact live with the installation by tweeting about one of the featured birds. Chirp & Drift will play the musical video of your chosen bird, along with your tweet. Use the hashtag #ChirpDriftOxford and a bird name from Blackbird Leys or Greater Leys streets.
Chirp & Drift is created by Kathy Hinde and presented by OCM.
This special online edition is filmed in the gardens of St George's Hall, Bristol.
