Bach Twist This short video quickly illustrates the two main layouts for music in our animations. The animations are based on frequency displayed over time, revealing the notes in the recording with detail and precision as well as other musical parameters not visible in traditional music notation. The beginning notes of the Fugue from Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy & Fugue in D minor are at first laid out horizontally across a mock keyboard to better label their pitches. As with the keyboard, Bass notes are on the left side and Treble notes on the right. About midway through the notes begin to lift up on the right side and move to an upright lattice in vertical position. With traditional music notation running behind this vertical lattice it’s easy to see how closely this method mirrors the music notation, but shows the actual length of each note, the volume contours, pitch bends, and even the timbre or tone of the notes if desired. Each voice in the fugue is marked with a different texture further aiding musical interpretation. #music #animation #classicalmusic #frequency #bach

Cloud Singers Don’t Let Me Down - The Beatles Cloud Singers is a view of the second chorus of Don't Let Me Down showing all the different instrument and vocal parts. The layout has the Bass notes on the left side and the Treble notes and harmonics on the right. Earlier music is in front with later music in the back. The various parts are portrayed using textures from the instruments that produced them. The clouds shaped by the vocals have been cross sectioned at the point the music is playing. John and Paul's images have been projected directly onto the cloud shapes created by their voices. John's vocal is on the left and Paul's higher harmony on the right.  Paul's electric bass part is rendered using textures from the dark fretboard of a Hofner violin electric bass. Electric guitars are rendered with a lighter fretboard from a guitar similar to George's. The keyboard depicts Billy Preston's electric piano parts. The light wood peaks show Ringo's drum parts representing the birchwood set he used in the famous rooftop performance of the song. At the front the drums are engulfed in red and yellow flames.
