Sure, birds make music. Tweedle-lee-dee-dee, tweedle-lee-dee-dee …
But Brazilian composer Jarbas Agnelli discovered a unique melody orchestrated by birds (and it has nothing to do with their songs). “Reading the newspaper one morning, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires,” Agnelli said. There were, he noted, five wires—the numbers of lines in a musical score. “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 was the rhapsodic result:
WOW what a nice way to start my day! having stress at home with my very sick kitty Duke and needed that lovely melody to put me in a better place. thanks MaryJane for sharing this.
Oh no, what’s wrong with daring Duke?
hi MaryJane, Duke has severe stomach/GI issues and they can’t seem to find a way to make him stop throwing up so i’ts getting dire now. thanks for your concern.Duke sends you kitty kisses
That’s awful. I’m just so very sorry. I’m leaving now to find Jasper and give him a hug.
THANKS for your kind words. Duke is one of the sweetest cats I’ve ever had. He never has growled, scratched or bitten, not even at the vets where they are poking and prodding him all the time. Duke and Earl are inseparable , and Earl knows he’s not feeling well. I’ll keep you posted . Yes, MaryJane, give your beautiful Jasper a big hug .
This musical arrangement is beautiful. Wow, only a gifted musician could “see” this tune from the birds. It was just lovely and made me cry!
I didn’t want it to stop. Lovely indeed. Good morning Winnie!
BEAUTIFUL!! Our Creator is AMAZING! That reminds me of my son, who has Down Syndrome. When he was in his teen years he would sit and play my piano, my mom’s piano, any piano and play his own music. You wouldn’t recognize it as anything else anyone has composed, but it was beautiful and musical. At one point my mom recorded what he played on her piano and gave me the tape. I had intended to listen to it and try to put it to paper. Sadly, though we lost the tape in our house fire in 1994. Now, that he’s older that isn’t something he does anymore, however, he still loves music and is one heck of a dancer!
Thanks for this music!
What a pretty music arrangement. It’s a very special talent to see music written among birds on electrical wires. This goes to show that we can find music in simple everyday objects, we just need to be open to their presence. I really enjoyed this video. It put a smile on my face.
I often find myself trying to sing the song I see the birds compose..on my way to work. Putting that sight reading and music theory college course to work everyday in my kindergarten class! It was not vanity or the boy I thought I was in love with who was a music major! There was an ultimate purpose.
