At the intersection of art and nature, with bird songs:

"Australian artist Andy Thomas <http://andythomas.com.au/> creates what he
describes as “audio life forms,” specifically 3D animations that respond to
audio input. For these latest pieces he used archival bird recordings from
the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision
<http://www.beeldengeluid.nl/> (in addition to one of his own recordings)
to create these new digital sound sculptures that animate in different ways
in reaction to the songs of each bird. Thomas uses more software tools than
we could reasonably share here, but you can learn a bit more over on his
website <http://www.andythomas.com.au/>."
