Visualizing the first Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suites by Alexander Chen

Visualizing the first Prelude from Bach's Cello Suites by Alexander Chen

I figure a little classical music in the morning is a good way to start the day, especially if it’s done in such an interesting manner. The video above is from a project called Baroque.me and it was created by Alexander Chen while a resident at Eyebeam. The Baroque.me is a web app of sorts, created entirely in HTML5 Canvas, Javascript and SoundManager, which allows you to fully interact with it. I also thought it was cool how he chose to visualize the piece, with the four rotating spheres acting as fingers and the lines stretching and changing to represent the strings. Pretty rad project.
