Music Animation Machine

Ok. Step number one, watch this visualization of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring…

Wow, right?!

It was created by Stephen Malinowski, using his Music Animation Machine.

Ok – it’s not interactive (the alleged theme of this blog) but it’s amazing. I could do a hundred posts on different way to visualize music.

I just realized I haven’t yet posted about John Whitney, an early computer graphics pioneer, (note: add that to my to-do list) so here’s a sample of his work….

On Stephen’s website there’s an amazing timelime of his work with lots of links. Definitely worth some time.
