In 2005 songwriter/performer Andrew Bird and print artist Jay Ryan collaborated on the artwork for Bird’s highly acclaimed record, "The Mysterious Production of Eggs." Here Bird and Ryan take the stage to describe - through conversation and performance - the creative efforts that infused the project. They explore the narrative depth of Ryan’s illustrations in relation to Bird’s songs, and talk about why, despite working in distinct mediums, they’re drawn to collaborate with each other. And they do this all while employing the tools of their trades - microphone, paper, guitar, and pencil.

Luke: Album - Noble Beat. This is Andrew Bird’s fourth album. I’m not big on most singer-songwriters since I don’t pay much attention to lyrics, but his instrumentation and arranging makes this album stand out.
