Thanx much, and no, i wasn't inspired by Andy Farnell - I'll have to get familiar with him.
I made this thing (Karl) first as a Max for Live plugin last year, because i was working in a pretty loud city space and was missing just sort of nature sounds. I can't resort to something like Youtube jungle athmo videos, really, that's just too simple A while after Karl started "singing" there seemed to be more birds in the backyard, but surely that was just an esoteric view point
On another note i am a fan of Olivier Messiaen's music since i was a child - he used a lot of transcribed bird voices for composition.
I never use computers on stage, so i am glad Karl can mate with an Owl now.
