Chickens Hooray is a cock-a-doodle-do party call from the crazy coop. Two mad chickens created this ecard: Octavian Fitzherbert (artist) and George Grinling (composer).
Octavian Fitzherbert is an Irish artist. His work is sketchy and imaginative, bizarre and brilliant. He was awarded a much coveted place at The National Drawing School and then went on to attain a BA in Fine Art from The National College of Art and Design, Ireland. After that he made the move into animation. It’s a medium that suits his approach to storytelling, which is often inspired by fairytales, is meandering, obscure and hilarious. All more than possible to achieve with animation.
George’s music evokes a contemporary orchestral sound. It’s avant-garde and fun, whilst maintaining a nostalgic texture. His sound is fundamentally a collage of the music that has influenced him throughout his life. From classical and pop, to electronic and jazz. He started writing music at a young age, but for his ambition to really flourish he dedicated a chunk of his life to teaching himself the fundamentals of composition, before continuing his studies as a protégé under some prominent composers in London. Simultaneously George found success in his electronic music explorations as part of THOOL, a band that gives him a parallel vocation, where he experiments with off-beat, off-the-wall compositional soundscapes.
