[VIDEO] Birds on the Wires (Conversion of bird positions to transcendent music)

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. Winner of the YouTube Play Guggenheim Biennial Festival.
