Tonight on Popart: the last of three broadcasts with a selection from ‘For The Birds: The BirdSong Project’. Featuring exclusive tracks from Balmorhea, The Flaming Lips, Lee Ranaldo, John Cale, Nico Muhly, Devendra Barnhart, Ben Lukas Boysen, and Mary Lattimore, among others.

Birdsong Project package


‘For The Birds: The Birdsong Project’ is a collection of no less than 245 recordings featuring all kinds of music and poetry.
All proceeds from this project and its many side events will benefit The Audubon Society, an American organization dedicated to bird conservation.

From a total of 13 hours, we made a selection presented in three programs.
Part 1 is still available on-demand here, and part 2 is still available here.
