Birds Of Feather - Make Music Together

We have all admired flocks of birds that fly or perch together in perfect harmony. Brazilian musician Jarbes Agnelli was doing the same when he saw this picture in a local newspaper. Then he suddenly had an inspiration . . . . . .

He wondered what it would sound like if he created a song, using the exact same location as the birds were sitting, as musical notes.

Once he had the notes, he created a tune, using a xylophone, bassoon, oboe and clarinet, as his main instruments. To his surprise, it translated into a beautiful melody.

Jarbes credits the song composition to the perfectly aligned birds and to photographer Paulo Pinto, who took the original picture. He says that the beautiful melody was not his but the bird's idea. Be sure to let us know what you think of this amazing song.

          That is such a cool idea! Why is oboe a vocabulary word? I wonder if it sounded good?
