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:

Watched Bird Song Preludes - Proof of Concept by Tim PrebbleTim Prebble from YouTube

This is a proof of concept for a project I am doing later in the year, as part of the Auckland City Council Artists Residency, where I will be based in Little Huia for two months...

A fascinating experiment of taking birdsong and translating it into music. This is pretty cool!
Bookmarked The Upper Valley Ukulele Club (uvukeclub.com)
The Upper Valley Ukulele Club, aka: uvUkeClub, is a free club for anyone that wants to play the ukulele in the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire.
Perhaps this is a reminder that I need to finally commit to learning the ukulele?
