Dream-Like Song Created From Birds Perched On Electric Wires Proves Nature Is Perfect

Huffington Post – by Sarah Barness

“Reading the newspaper one morning, I saw this picture of birds on the electric wires,” says video creator Jarbas Agnelli.”I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.”

Interpreting the position of birds as musical notes resulted in the beautiful piece you hear above. The work was made over an original photo shot by Paulo Pinto and published in 2009 in a Brazilian newspaper “O Estado de São Paulo.”

The video description ends with this: “I just erased the birds for effect at the end, but didn’t change their positions at all. What would be the point?”

  1. Damn Angel, I thought that I was the only one that noticed those birds on them power lines and made music out of their position on the bar 🙂
    GREAT POST Angel 🙂

  2. At the end of the video there’s a link provided that allows someone to buy the song. Are these birds being paid for their intellectual property, or is you-tube facilitating this blatant theft of their creation?

    The headline gives the birds all credit for making the song, but I’m willing to bet they didn’t even get a fistful of seeds out of this racket.

    Bunch of crooks.
