From the ICA website: “Sculptor/instrument-maker Ian Schneller and composer/violinist Andrew Bird share a fascination with sound and its interaction with the natural world.

Since 2010, the duo has collaboratively produced Sonic Arboretum, an installation of up to 70 colorful horn speakers made from recycled newsprint, dryer lint, baking soda, and shellac and powered by custom-made tube amplifiers. Through the speakers, Andrew Bird plays an original, 50-minute composition, Echolocations: Canyon, which he recorded by whistling and playing his violin in a canyon to experiment with the site’s reverberations.
