Andrew Bird and Ian Schneller's Sonic Arboretum

After months of work with the creators of Specimen Products, I have finally finished my documentary on the Sonic Arboretum! I couldn't be more excited about the project and what it means for my business. I initially contacted Specimen looking to produce a documentary about hand made goods produced locally in Chicago. I had thought it was going to take me forever to find a company willing to let me use them as my test subject, but Specimen was on board from the start! First I was going to focus on the custom guitars that they design and create at their shop, but shortly after starting they told me about their biggest collaborative, The Sonic Arboretum. Their idea was beautiful, they would team up with the amazingly talented Andrew Bird to create a garden of sound that would flow through the Museum of Contemporary Art using their impressive line of speakers and amplifiers. I was immediately brought on with new concept, and I was lucky enough to be there every step of the way. Check out all the images below from the production of the Horn Speakers and Tube Amplifiers to the concert at the MOCA.
