Birds on the Wires


Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.

I just came across this on Lily and the Muse and knew it was too cool not to share.

If you would like more explanation, read the following blurb from the composer I found on the Vimeo page:

"Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn’t the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.

An interview about this and other works: biginterview.org/"
