I discovered this music project from watching TEDx videos (videos that are organized independently and hosted on TED), you can see the video I checked out here. I was really intrigued by the idea of animating classical music, so I set out to see if the project was somewhere on the web, and as luck had it I found the Music Animation Machine.
The site is pretty bare bones, but I like that about it. You get straight to the content. First up, an incredible animated version of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Clicking it will whisk you away to Youtube, where you’ll find a 33 minute video of the animated score.
I headed over to the History section and checked out the Timeline of the Music Animation Machine which shows how much the project has grown since the 1970’s. If you click on an event on the timeline you can learn more about it. For example, just how was the iPad a boon to the project? The link to the TED page happened in 2012 and picks up where the timeline left off.
This is so cool! I hope you’ll enjoy checking it out as much as I did!
