Video: These Birds On A Wire Make Classical Music

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/19/15

A musician’s interpretation of a common outdoor scene.

While reading a newspaper one day, a musician named Jarbas Agnelli saw a photo of birds sitting on an electrical wire. He cut it out and decided to create a song using the exact location of the birds on the wire as musical notes. This short video demonstrates his musical interpretation of the birds. It was made using the original photo, which ran in one of the largest Brazilian newspapers. The end result is clever and lovely, a fascinating synthesis of art and nature. (Music made with Logic, video by After Effects.)
