Robbie Lynn Hunsinger: Skitter Flutter 

When: May 10-June 24 2013
Twice a year, around 5 million birds fly through Chicago. While it may at first seem like a comical setup (“This, sir, is an ex-parrot!”), potential collisions with windows and skyscrapers are a very real, very devastating fact of life during Chicago’s migratory season. What does that have to do with Nashville? Nashville-based artist Robbie Hunsinger is from Chicago, and not only is she a bighearted bird-lover — she founded an organization dedicated to migratory bird rescue — she’s also an incredibly dynamic musician and sound artist. Her PlayStation hacks and duets with Arduino snare drums have dovetailed (ahem) with her passion for bird rescue, and the resulting sound installation is opening tonight at Seed Space. “Sounds pull the viewer in” she says, “but dissipate upon investigation, much as crickets grow quiet as we approach.” Imagine bird songs mixed with jazz mixed with robots mixed with free wine, and you might come close to understanding what you’re in for.
