Birds on a Wire — by Jarbas Agnelli
He wrote, "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. Not the most original idea in the
universe, but I was 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."
"Here I've posted a short video made with the original photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds)."
