Each one of us interprets what we see in different ways. For example, in the photo below, I see parallel wires, soft clouds, a blue sky, a flock of birds...all the obvious things.
But I also see a non-conformist pigeon to the left, which makes this ordinary sighting a tad more interesting. And so my camera’s shutter button is pressed to capture the moment.
It’s all about perception, and Brazilian composer Jarbas Agnelli certainly can attest to that. While reading the newspaper one morning, he noticed a photograph of birds in silhouette perched on parallel wires, and interpreted what he saw as music. He cut out the image and made a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes.
The result is magical, and a testimony to the beauty in the ordinary:
And who knew that crows are (secretly) such great composers...
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
