Birds on posts to Musical Notes

9 09 2009

For the rest of us, this would have been a boring picture, but 

Jarbas Agnellie writes

“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.

Probably the best way to hear Beatles and their instruments. Or get the Beatles Stereo Box that includes all 13 studio albums “remastered” for clarity(Buy Here).
