Recently on YouTube, I became aware of a fascinating video created by BACARDI where a small team of musicians and technicians who joined forces to make music from the movement of bats that were migrating through Austin, Texas.
The whole situation actually reminded me of another video I had seen recently by composer Jarbas Agnelli who had seen a picture of birds sitting on a power line and made music from their placement. According to Jarbas:
"Reading a newspaper, 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 (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.
I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper."
I have a feeling that with the access to new technology and the ability of trading ideas more easily, we will be seeing more amazing works from musicians that were either inspired or pays tribute to nature. It will be fascinating to see what is waiting for us in the coming future.
