Ever wondered what kind of song birds would write if they were given access to electric guitars? Well, here's your chance. French artist and composer Celeste Boursier-Mougenot has created a piece intended to make audiences reconsider how they perceive of sound and the natural world. He outfitted an aviary compound with electric guitars, stocked it with zebra finches, The HuffPo Green explains:

His latest installation for the Barbican Centre in London puts a flock of zebra finches in an aviary that functions as a sort of high-tech playground, complete with electric guitars and other musical instruments. You start to get the feeling the birds have an ear for music, especially when one zebra finch rocks.

Pretty cool.
