Birdsong: The Music Of Nature

The sound of birds chirping is nothing new, but have you ever thought, is there more to that hum or tweet? Could it perhaps be considered music? In fact, there are many similarities between the way we interact with music, and the way birds do. Believe it or not, bird song has been inspiring and influencing our music for centuries, and joining us on the line to discuss this was Hollis Taylor, Research Fellow at Macquarie University.  If you’d like to learn more, look out for her book ‘Is Birdsong Music? Outback Encounters with an Australian Songbird,’ and the CD ‘Absolute Bird.’
