New interview on birdsong

Matthew Schellhorn discusses the connexions between birdsong and music in a new online interview.

The interview, on the 15questions.net site, answers questions such as “Can animal sounds be considered music?” and “Is birdsong a display of creativity?”

Matthew, who has built several programmes around the theme of bird song, asserts that the most remarkable thing about these programmes is that they both confirm and contest Messiaen's position in the field of birdsong: "One of the things I wish to articulate in this programme is how dependent he was, perhaps, on those who had gone before him.”
