Bach Visualization

Posted at 1:58 PM on December 8, 2011 by William Johnston (1 Comments)

This is a fascinating visualization of the Prelude to Bach's Cello Suites.

I like how it shows the chordal and melodic structure in a whole different way; the musical line forming the broken chords and flowing into the melody is quite beautiful visually as well as musically.

Here is a video of the entire visualization:

Baroque.me: J.S. Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 - Prelude from Alexander Chen on Vimeo.

If you have a recent web browser, you can also use the interactive visualization (written using the HTML5 Canvas for the web developers among you). The developer also has written a blog post describing the visualization.
