A Thing of Beauty…

I couldn’t NOT share this with you…

It is so beautiful that I must confess it made me a little teary!

Birds on Wires - Jarbas Agnelli

It was made by a Brasilian musician and film director named Jarbas Agnelli, and here’s the story behind it, in his own words;

“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).”

While this is over four years old – I have only recently seen this breathtaking video…it has lifted my spirits and (if you haven’t already seen it…) I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
