Flip Baber, founder and creative director of Johnnyrandom Music Composition & Sound Design, has added sounds, natural jungle sounds to the ambience of David Tomb’s Grand Birds of the Philippines.
Multiple recordings of bird calls from cataloged biological research recordings and from home videos of the Mindanao jungle were combined with sounds of cicadas and frogs then processed to create an audio experience with depth and movement.
You can hear it here but you’ve gotta’ come in and hear it while stepping in to Tombs extraordinary re-creation of the jungle inhabitants and habitat.

Step into the gallery and you step into the magnificence of David Tomb’s Mindanao jungle. With luminous and colorful paper assemblages Tomb conveys the spatial depth of Mindanao and the grand birds that live there. A 12-foot high 15-foot wide wall piece of a life size Philippine Eagle nest site commands the gallery.
With this exhibition and with his Jeepney Projects Worldwide, Tomb brings attention to the challenges and tensions these grand birds face in order to survive and share a sustainable future with an ever-growing Filipino population.
