    Birds on the Wires

    Fun idea - figured it would appeal to you like-minded folks...

    Video link: http://vimeo.com/6428069

    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.

    There has been an ad on our PBS channels using that very idea with a pianist/composer trying to get inspiration and finally does when looking at the electrical wires outside his window that had birds sitting on it. I think the ad was for "IdeaStream".

    Nice piece you made from the birds!
