Birds on the Wires

The Melody of nature. You have to watch this video. Using birds sitting on electric wires as a representation of sheet music, this music was composed. And I have to say its pretty great

Quoting the creator "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."
