A fascinating experiment of taking birdsong and translating it into music. This is pretty cool!

  1. I had posted about watching Tim’s experiment and a fellow academic replied to me via Mastodon that about a reverse experiment from 1715 that may be of interest:

    Although strictly speaking, the goal here was to get birds to imitate the written recorder tunes rather than vice versa.
