Birds on The Wires

5 04 2010

“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).”

Love to see him take this bird inspired piece and develop a longer work around it.

It would be pretty. He already had me at just the thought of a snippet but when he actually did it I was captivated and thunderstruck with the piece. Very beautiful ingenuity.
