One morning, Brazilian filmmaker and composer Jarbas Agnelli was inspired to create music in an unexpected way. “Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires,” recalled Agnelli. “I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit).”
