You’re no Bird of Paradise is an on-going artistic research about indigenous music and rituals that are in danger of disappearing due to technological, societal and/or ecological issues. Instead of simply documenting them, the aim is to study both their sonic and visual characteristics, the context in which they are played and to find ways to translate them into tangible artworks. 

This research is undertaken within the framework of the ArtScience Interfaculty between the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) and the Royal Conservatoire (KC) of The Hague.
