BENGALURU: The SkyIsland Beatbox project has provided residents of Bengaluru an unique opportunity to compose music using bird songs.

Residents can enrol for a workshop in which they will be taught to compose original music using a combination of bird songs and ‘beatbox’.  The workshop, to be organised by SkyIsland, will begin on Tuesday.

The objective of the project is to raise awareness about birds and their conservation. The diversity of indigenous bird species in the Western Ghats is fast disappearing due to deforestation and climate change, said a release. The workshop will teach participants to record bird songs, mix them with high quality photographs and footage of birds.

On Tuesday, a performance has been organised at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) campus which will be open to the public. Workshops will be held during the next three days. Interested people can register on, added the release.
