Music for the Eyes

Three distinct takes on the visualization of MIDI-based music.

I imagine videos of this sort would be a helpful addition to music lessons, helping students explore the structure and melody of the songs they are learning to play.

Music Visualization #1

Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee visualized by Andy Fillebrown using AudioCarver.

This one has a Guitar Hero feel to it. It’s also the closest in feel (imo) to plain old sheet music.

Music Visualization #2

Resonant Chamber by Animusic a company that specializes in the 3D visualization of MIDI-based music.

My 19 month old daughter loves this one the most.

Music Visualization #3

Bach Little Fugue in G Minor visualized by A. P. Anderson using the MAM MIDI Player.

This is the most abstract of the three visualizations, but I feel it conveys the most information about the structure of the song.
