Birdie Memory - Learn to listen to nature

Simply scan the poster with a smartphone, the birds start to sing, it's magic!

All these birdsongs, where do they come from?

We would love to tell you that we dressed all in khaki and went early in the fields to record the song of the Blackcap or the Goldcrest, but in fact it din't go quite like this.

The 20 birdsonsgs come from recordings of major European museums, the British Library of London and the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin. The British Library for example has a fund of 5000 birdsongs. This database is freely accessible to the public under the Creative Commons license (if you mix on Saturday evening and you want to pimp your sets with Chiffchaff chirping, it's possible!).

To help us see more clearly in all these twitterings, Maxime, Birdie Memory's ornithologist, made a selection to offer us representative songs for each species. John (the animator responsible for the irresistible swaying of our small birds) then stalled the movements on the sound for the illusion to be perfect:

It is thanks to the Europeana Foundation, which brings together the archives of the European cultural and scientific heritage on its formidable portal, that we have learned the existence of these sounds that are at the heart of Birdie Memory.

 

That's it, you know everything now.
