Artsy Fartsy Friday~~~Birds on The Wires

I was over at Claudia's blog Mockingbird Hill Cottage ( if you haven't checked it out please do...she is wonderful!)

Anyhoo, Today she posted about a flock of black birds that suddenly took over her tree and as quickly as they appeared ...they were gone away on their journey. I commented that whenever that happens in my back yard ...It sort of freaks me out a bit....Then yada yada yada I went  on my weekly search for an art post for today and I found this.....

It seems a Man saw a news paper pic of birds on a set of wires....and to him they looked like notes on a music sheet. The rest my dear bloggy buddies is sweet genius.

Please enjoy Birds on a wire By Jarbas Agnelli

Here is what the artist had to say 

"Reading the newspaper one morning, I saw this 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. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

This work was made over the original photo, un-retouched, published in one of the biggest Brazilian newspapers, "O Estado de São Paulo" on 27/aug/2009, and shot by Paulo Pinto (note: I just erased the birds for effect at the end, but didn't change their positions at all. What would be the point?).

I've made this short video to demonstrate my interpretation of the birds as notes."

Music made with Logic.
Video made with After Effects.
