Beatboxer mimics bird calls for National Trust album

The National Trust have commissioned a beatboxer to record an album mimicking bird noises.

It is hoped the album of 'tweet music' will help soothe people living in cities who feel 'starved' of nature.

Beatboxer Justin Singh, who describes himself as a vocal sculptor, recreated the calls of wood pigeons, blackbirds and woodpeckers and others for the record.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Drive: "I spent a couple days... soaking in the environment then going back to the studio."
