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.
