About B I R D
B I R D is a website that was originally created for a seminar in the application of semiotics to music analysis taught by Dr. David Bard-Schwarz at the University of North Texas in the Fall of 2019. The work was featured as an on-site installation at the 2019 LaTex Electroacoustic Music Festival. The work owes a great deal to Jennifer Walshe's Aisteach.org or Historical Documents of the Irish Avant-Garde and to the theories of Charles Sanders Pierce, Ferdinand de Saussure, Roland Barthes, and Jacques Derrida. A more detailed discussion of the work is contained in the file below. This file is the document I wrote as an accompaniment to the site as part of the seminar, a somewhat glancing, but accurate depiction of my approach to the project.
