The Music of Birds

Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.

Student Assignment:
Brigette W.

Jarbas Angelli, a Brazilian musician, saw a picture of birds sitting on electrical wires, taken by Paul Pinto, in a local newspaper. He cut the photograph out, and set about matching the birds to appropriate notes. Angelli’s short clip features his own arrangements, but he is careful to give credit where credit is due—to the birds themselves.

Read Agnelli's own blog post about his work.

Brigette, as a musician what do you think about his his effort? Would this be easy or difficulty to do? With your special talent as a violinist, consider what other music-related information might be helpful to your readers.

When writing the story, remember to answer the five W's of a good news story.
