Originality isn’t just for the fashion industry.

Following on from the success of indigenous tribes in Australia, a PhD student at Charles Darwin University recently teamed up with a music producer.

He recorded the sounds of endangered bird species and together with the producer they produced a 24-minute album within three weeks.

It features the chatter and calls of 53 species of bird – among them cockatoos, barking owls and night parrots – all singing for their survival.

Amazingly, the album soared to number 3 in the Australian domestic charts, ahead of several international icons.

The proceeds go to a bird conservation organisation.

It’s not the first time nature has made for a winning playlist.
