Birds on the Wires

Some artistic inspiration from unorthodox sources:

Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.

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.

The newspaper story about my work (O Estado de São Paulo):


Sharing a Guitar

You’ve seen two piano players at one keyboard, how about two guitar players sharing one guitar?

Now does anyone else find four arms on a guitar quite disconcerting? Or is it just because I play guitar and am quite used to seeing one hand picking and one hand on the fretboard?
