Sensory Overload

So, if you think you can handle it, you should watch the below video. It turns ‘Clair de lune’ into a visual and auditory experience. It’s a bit mesmerizing, as willtuck so eloquently noted.

(Also I understand this is a weak attempt at a resurrection post, but I’ll get there.)

  1. My first experience with this was a lullaby by Chopin that started off a fascinating lecture by Edward Tufte (look him up) yesterday. The lights were dimmed and the animation took place on two large screens in the front of the large meeting hall. It was very soothing and slightly hypnotic. One started to see patterns and their variations and began to expect next moves in the piece. It was a powerful demonstration of visual communication.

  2. At work (where I have no sound for my computer) I looked at this and thought, it’s a bunch of colored bars moving slowly across the screen, even with music how fascinating could it possibly be?

    But now that I see and hear the whole thing, it really is cool.
