Man Creates Dream-Like Song From Birds Sitting On Wires As Musical Notes [VIDEO]


American novelist Alice Walker once said: In nature, nothing is perfect, and everything is perfect.

Well, Brazilian multimedia artist Jarbas Agnelli just proved that nature is perfect… repeating patterns, synchronistic waves, perfect symmetry…

Inspired by a photograph shot by Paulo Pinto and published in 2009 in a Brazilian newspaper “O Estado de São Paulo”, Jarbas created a song using the exact location of a group of birds sitting on electric wires as musical notes. He told VICE:

“I was eating breakfast one morning and saw a photo in the newspaper of birds perched on a telephone wire. I then cut the photo and went to my piano to see if I could play the birds, since the picture resembled a musical score. There was in fact, an interesting little song in there. So I arranged it for an orchestra, and did a short video to demonstrate my idea. “


The video was a huge success. It ended up being the winner of the YouTube Play Guggenheim Biennial Festival.
