While the prevailing thinking is that art often imitates life, for Brazilian filmmaker and musician Jarbas Agnelli that statement also makes sense in reverse. After seeing a newspaper photograph depicting birds perched on power lines, Agnelli noticed a distinct resemblance to notes on stanza. Curious to know what type of underlying melody existed within the image, Agnelli translated the position of the birds into a musical composition. The video below gives an entirely new meaning to the “harmony of the universe.”
