One day Jarbas Agnelli was reading his newspaper when he saw a picture of birds on electric wires which immediately fascinated him.. He noticed that the positions of the birds looked like a pice of musical notation. He set about recreating the melody based on where the birds were perched.
He contacted the photographer who had taken the original picture who was also intrigued by the music. He informed his Editor and the whole idea was turned in to a story in the newspaper. Agnelli, spurred on, then created this animation with the photo, the music and the score.
There is absolutely no Photoshop involved here - the melody is created from the exact positions of the birds on the wires. It’s a lovely little tune, too!
