Nina Saltman sent us an email in response to our post about John Cage:
“Regarding the ‘what if’ to music. You must look at this video! Jarbas Agnelli, a Brazilian musician and film director saw these birds on electric wires that reminded him of the music staff, and wrote a song based on their configuration. It is great stuff, and right in line with your post today.”
It’s a beautiful example of the hidden potential within each moment, what scientist Stuart Kauffman called “the adjacent possible”. Perfect!
