    Commemorating the singing of fifty birds, once heard in central Sydney, before they were gradually forced out of the city by European settlement. 'Forgotten Songs', an installation by Michael Thomas Hill. The birds' calls filter down from a canopy of birdcages suspended above Angel Place, and change as day shifts to night.
