Céleste Boursier-Mougenot produces music in surprising and unexpected ways through large- scale acoustic environments. Boursier-Mougenot's immersive sonic installation, From Here To Ear, introduces a flock of 70 brightly plumed Zebra Finches to a gallery-turned-aviary to live among iconic Gibson Les Paul and Thunderbird bass guitars. At turns ambient and melodic, a constantly changing soundscape emerges as the finches explore their environment, eating, nesting and perching on the amplified instruments.
