I love stumbling across this kind of stuff on the internet, enjoy!

Jarbas Agnelli explaining his video – 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. Here I’ve posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds). Music made with Logic. Video made with After Effects.

The world is but a canvas to the imagination. ~Henry David Thoreau

  1. It takes a true artist to see music/art in the ordinary.
    I often wonder the number of spectacular happenings that I miss in a single day, just because I’m too busy to take the time to stop and notice.
    Thanks for sharing this, it’s a reminder to slow down and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
