“Birds on Wires” by Jarbas Agnelli

This was posted by Karim Metwaly and sent to me by my Facebook friend, Chris Kulaga.  Karim added this to his post: “Birds naturally station themselves as musical notes on electric wires, so a guy (Jarbas Agnelli) decides to play it, hear what it sounds like. So beautiful.”

Some “guy,” this Brazilian artist, Jarbas Agnelli.

In his own words, “Reading the newspaper one morning, 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. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating. This work was made over the original photo, un-retouched, published in one the biggest Brazilian newspapers, “O Estado de São Paulo” on 27/aug/2009, and shot by Paulo Pinto (note: I just erased the birds for effect at the end, but didn’t change their positions at all). I’ve made this short video to demonstrate my interpretation of the birds as notes.”(from FILE, Electronic Language International Festival,  http://file.org.br/artist/jarbas-agnelli/ downloaded 3/19/2015)

Our Muse speaks to us so clearly when we are open to its voice.  What wondrous force entered Jarbas Agnelli’s consciousness, made such deep connection to enable him to perceive the message that was being given— opened him as a conduit so that he would envision and interpret this ethereal composition for the rest of us?

Could this be higher consciousness singing to us?

How could it not be…So much wonder exists in the All.
