Birdsongs is a down-the-rabbit-hole look at one man's search for a particularly fascinating girl in a digital world. Based on and featuring the music of Striding Lion's original concept album of the same name, Birdsongs tells the story of the Birdwatcher, who finds himself enraptured with a girl he discovers online, and who leads him on a journey through the nooks and crannies of an internet-based world. Birdsongs explores a world of narcissism and voyeurism, of self-branding and self-marketing, where people come and go quickly, and are not always who they seem to be. Birdsongs features a live, five-piece rock band, ten original rock compositions created by the Striding Lion ensemble, athletic and eclectic choreography, and original and found text created and gathered collaboratively by the ensemble.
