What if you could see the sound of a nightingale?

Nightingale and Canary from Andy Thomas on Vimeo.

Andy Thomas of Australia is a multimedia artist, who makes 3D animations of bird songs. He calls them “audio life forms.” He does it using 3D visualization software and other programs, breaking down photos of the birds into their composite parts. He then reassembles the images in a collage and builds animations that react – based on rules he’s set – to the sound of the birds’ singing.
