This video created by Alice H Cash of Birds on a Wire is set to music played by her. I’ll let her tell the story…
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.
Here I’ve posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds).
Music made with Logic.
Video made with After Effects.

Dr. Alice H Cash trained as a classical, concert pianist, I stepped into the world of music as medicine in 1990. It is a fantastic adventure! It has taken me around the world and I’m eager to keep traveling! Free sample of healing music: www.healingmusicenterprises.com/Sample_Healing_Music.html
I could easily relate to how our animals friends can choose us in their life and come to us in the most incredible ways. My long time companion Beau, combined with my sister and kids were unrelenting in their quest for him to join our family. That is quite an amazing animal story as well but that is another post.

When I was studying acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine our class was very small and we became a close family. One day my friend Ara brought in the audio recording of crickets for all of us to hear. We did not know what to expect and when we heard this our eyes filled and an air of amazement and connectedness filled the room. I have never forgotten it.
The crickets singing had been slowed down to match the lifespan of a human. I have included more info below for you. Does this recording bring up emotions or remind you of our connectedness?
Jim Wilson & David Carson – God’s Cricket Chorus (1992).
The story behind GOD’S CRICKETS.
This unusual recording contains two tracks:
1. the natural sound of crickets chirping
2. the sound of the crickets slowed down to match and mirror the length of the average lifespan of a human being.
The angelic chorus you hear accompanying the sound of the crickets is NOT a synthesizer or a chorus singing. It’s the crickets themselves (slowed down) creating the effect. Really an amazing thing they’ve accomplished here. This recording can be played continuously in the background to create a natural soothing atmosphere for calming and healing.
This recording has been created by Jim Wilson.
This recording is an extended digitally remixed and mastered version taken from the original 1992 recording entitled “Ballad of the Twisted Hair” from the album “Medicine Songs” by David Carson and Little Wolf Band produced by Jim Wilson and released on Raven Records.
