One morning while reading a newspaper, Jarbas saw a photograph of birds on an electric wire. He cut out the photo and was inspired to make a song using the exact location of the birds as musical notes. He was curious to hear what melody the birds created.
He sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the newspaper. It ended up Winner of the YouTube Play Guggenheim Biennial Festival.
Just have a listen to these sounds. Were the birds positioned accidentally?
See Jarbas Agnelli’s live presentation of Birds On The Wires w/ orchestra, here, right here! It’s good! Happy 4th!
