Baroque. me

Using the mathematics behind string length and pitch, Baroque. me visualises the first Prelude from Bach's Cello Suites

Created by Alexander Chen, this interactive project highlights the music's underlying structure and subtle shifts. He created eight strings, as the Prelude's natural phrasing is in groups of eight notes. The orbiting nodes pluck the strings, like a rotating music box, but the user can also throw the nodes off track and watch the system slowly regain its rhythm.

The result is rather beautiful and hypnotic. Find out more about Alexander and his other projects here.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
