Beethoven 5th Symphony (No. 5, graphical score animation, allegro)


Best viewed in HD, looks almost like Guitar Hero Orchestra version … Made with “The Music Animation Machine“….

  2. Would be cool if they could encode amplitude into the display as well. Perhaps with color or shade.

    I liked the Beethoven sample as I could follow the different sections of the orchestra and watch visually how they interplay.

    Your Bach Tocata example is particularly interesting. I can watch it and see my organ player friend Will running three keyboards, footpedals and stops simultaneously with the visual. Puts all that activity into a whole different perspective to help understand what’s going on there.

    Neat stuff!

  4. Where was this when I (non-musician music lover) was really trying to HEAR classical music thirty years ago???

  5. I like seeing this visualization with a fugue

    I was introduced to fugues by the book ‘Godel, Escher, Bach’ (like a lot of geeks I suspect) but I never really got it until I watched these visualizations.

  6. Would love to have this in a framed screen of moving art over my fireplace, and have it go through a playlist each day, programmed according to the scene I want, with the room lights included in the scene setup. :^D

    Oh be kind to your woodland friends, for a duck may be somebody’s mother!

    Sillyness remembered from childhood sung to “The Stars and Stripes”.

  8. I think I just learnt more about music watching those clips than I have in years of playing. :)
