Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist and lyricist Andrew Bird is known for his experimental forays into pop music that incorporate elements of gypsy jazz, classical, folk, and country blues traditions. For Dark Sounds, Bird collaborated with sculptor, inventor, and luthier Ian Schneller to present Sonic Arboretum, a site-specific performance involving violin, looped passages, and a landscape of speaker horns.
