The Songs We Sing Amsterdam
From 29/05/2013 until 31/05/2013
Various locations in the vicinity of Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy
09.00 - 17.00 hrs
This installation features bird calls collected from human volunteers between May 5th and May 7th at the Lloyd Hotel and Cultural Embassy.
The Songs We Sing is part of a multi-city project titled The Songs Cycle by American artist Elizabeth Demaray.
The project ponders the lack of bird sound in the postindustrial landscape, and offers a possible solution.
Best as they could, volunteers at Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy imitated the fischreiher, the oehoe, the seidenreiher, the rorhdommel, mallard, grutto, partrich, pheasant, heron grabier, egrit, roodborstje and porseleinhoen.
Passers-by of Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy will thus be treated to amateur birdsong.
