Rock music has gone to the birds in a new exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. The sonic installation is the work of French artist Celeste Boursier-Mougenot and features 70 zebra finches playing about a dozen electric guitars in a walk-through gallery space-cum-aviary. Sounds like a flight of fancy, right?
