Sunday Scoop: Birds On Wires Inspire Musical Composition

Can music be found hidden throughout nature? According to Jarbas Agnelli, the answer is “Yes!” See how he turned a photo of birds sitting on electricity wires into a video and musical piece.

While reading his daily newspaper, Jarbas Agnelli noticed a photo of birds that caught his eye. It appeared to Agnelli that the birds were arranged in the formation of musical notes on a piece of composition paper. He copied the formation and turned it into a piece of music.

Not long after, he contacted the photographer who took the image who then informed his editor to create a story surrounding the event and the music. Agnelli took the music and photo and made the following video illustrating how music and beauty happens throughout nature.

Take a listen, it’s a beautiful piece!
