Bird Languages


Sen Wisher

November 23, 2018

Sen Wisher presents “Bird Languages,” a modern mythology that follows neighborhood birds through forest-sized feelings. The thirteen songs therein represent three years of lessons learned in Eugene while living near Hendricks Park and going on walks along the Willamette River. The album’s soundscape is many-feathered. Bedroom hymns at an organ slowly take flight. Frustrated drums dissolve into jubilant brass. Xeroxed harmonies appear. A viola soars above the birdsong of self-talk below. And bristling nylon strings conjure cross-stitched drones. It's equal parts intricate vector folk, orchestral parrot pop, chirp-rock and eagle-eye’d-power-trance. But you could just as easily mistake it for radio interference from the aviary just down the street.
