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.
