Strange Loops

From the mind of Andrew Bird. A quiet moment in low light.

 

“When I close my eyes sometimes and try to sleep, I can’t stop thinking about my own eyes. And it’s like your eyes start straining to see themselves.

That’s what it feels like to me.

It’s not pleasant.

I’m sorry if I put that idea in your head.”

 

“Electronic feedback is the sound of self destruction.”

 

His electronic looping weaves a fabric of overlays.... like a phase-shifted synaesthesia of fugue.

 

The TED video of his one-man-band performance just came out. Enjoy.
