birds on the wire
by alyssa bozekowski
I found Jarbas Agnelli’s video of Birds on the Wire through vimeo and found it very interesting. I wonder if he could make a whole song from multiple different photos?
“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.”
