Dawn Chorus by Marcus Coates

Friends from England have been raving about this installation piece by Marcus Coates. He recorded early morning bird song, then moved it down to human voice pitch and had 19 singers each mimic one song. Then he recorded the singers, sped the video up and projected them on the walls of a space so that they mimicked the actual dawn chorus. Apparently it is quite humorous, yet moving.
