Andrew Bird: A Study in Artful Contradiction

He is a one-man show. Alternating between a violin, glockenspiel, and guitar, Andrew Bird also sings, uses looping pedals, and whistles—so proficiently that it sounds like another instrument. Then there are the whirling, exposed double-horned Leslie speakers. During a clinic for Five-Week Summer Performance Program students, Bird performed several songs and entertained questions about process, influences, and a small toy monkey perched near those enormous speakers.
