Jarbas Agnelli spotted a picture in a newspaper of birds sitting on electric wires. He cut out the photo and decided to make a song using the exact location of the birds as notes.
He admits, “I knew it wasn’t the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.”
He sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto and the story ended up as an interview in the very same paper, O Estado de São Paulo, where he had seen the original photograph.
The song was performed at TedX São Paulo.
