Andrew Bird playing and singing in a canyon (and how space shapes music)

Not sure how I missed this, but violinist and singer-songwriter Andrew Bird is recording “site specific compositions…in exceptional natural and urban environments”:

“Ever since I was a child I would test different spaces with my voice or whistle or violin. Whatever sound you make it’s like a giant limb that can reach beyond your fingers and grope the corners of the room. Now when I’m on tour playing a different theater every night we "tune” the room, hunting down the bass traps and the standing waves to give the listener the most even and wide spectrum of sound. There are certain frequencies that resonate while others are lifeless. Sometimes the room refuses to yield and I have to consider playing different songs that will work in that room. It’s a challenge but I enjoy the moments when I must yield to the environment. So I thought it would be interesting to take all this outside where the reflections off the landscape are triggering countless inferences and steering the conversation.“

Echolocations: Canyon is the first in Andrew Bird’s new series, recorded in the Coyote Gulch canyons of Utah. One of the compositions  is called “The Canyon Wants To Hear C Sharp”:

After some experimenting in Coyote Gulch it was discovered that C# creates the most echo feedback, especially when it swoops downward taking on an animal call quality like that of a coyote or bat. 

Oh and speaking of sound and location, here’s a video of a dude singing a song in 15 different spaces to show off the importance of acoustics:

And if you dig that, check out David Byrne’s TED talk about how architecture helped music evolve: 

Anyways, back to Andrew Bird: I’ve been listening to the EP (which is 50 minutes long or so) all morning. Good working music. You can buy it here.
