Andrew Bird's brand of indie rock doesn't sound like anyone else's. The multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer uses digital delay and electronics to blend the sounds of pop and chamber music. Recently, Bird composed his first-ever film score for the movie Norman (hailed as a probing, thoughtful score by The New York Times), contributed to the soundtrack of The Muppets, and collaborated with inventor Ian Schneller on Sonic Arboretum, an installation at New York's Guggenheim Museum and Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art.

 

Guests:

Andrew Bird and Ana Gasteyer
