Andrew Bird Plays With the Sound of Self-Destruction

Andrew Bird makes it all look so easy. The orchestration, and creative awareness.

The source of inspiration can take infinite forms, and for the Mr. Bird's new song he exclusively performs for TED, the everyday occurrence (especially for a sound wizard) of a noise loop triggers an investigation of other self-destructive loops and how they occur in biological, metaphysical, and creative instances.

I find that relationships are the greatest source of inspiration for my work...I guess I'm not too far off from using self-destructive loops, either.
