Didn't PBS have an ad like this? A pianist can't figure out the next measure in a song, looks out the window, sees birds on telephone lines and plays the "notes" the birds represent.

reminds me of the PBS commercial that was shown a couple of years back with a composer being inspired by birds on a wire ...

I do like how they made the film.

Do you folks remember the commedian/composer Steve Allen? He'd have people send in birds on wire photos and compose song based on them..live...
