Quotes

 This gateway installation is as uplifting as it is entertaining - Time Out****

"
An 5* aviary…a nice place for a small bird to be.” Kirsty Lang, BBC Radio 4

"It turns out these birds can rock – one even goes all Jimmy Page with a twig"
Guitarist

"A perpetual live soundscape that may well be a match for any ‘fledgling’ post-rock star......The Curve is one of those art events that just demands your attention….." www.weheart.co.uk

"An immersive exploration of nature, music and the haphazard."
Spoonfed

“Like Duchamp, (Céleste) seems to understand the creative potential of random acts and non-directed participation. He's already proved in this artwork that while Keith Richards and Eric Clapton might be masters of the Gibson Les Paul, even they cannot play it like 40 wild birds - not a chance.” Will Gompertz, BBC
