Drawing birdsong

With little traffic on the roads, we can hear birds outside our windows in the morning, a novel experience in town. Living in the isles, of course, there is no particular problem with noise pollution and we can hear the migrant birds at this time of year, but it is lovely to wake up to wrens and sparrows in London. Capturing those sounds as a reminder of these times would be a useful idea for patterns. So here is an artist who uses found objects to capture bird songs. Don't you think they would look great as printed textiles?
