Click above to view our two main layouts for music animation. The vertical display mirrors music notation perfectly, but shows so much more.




To create the 3D images used for the animation and artwork a passage of music is analyzed for its frequency content (what we hear as the pitches and tone of the music) thousands of times. Up to one hundred thousand “slices” of the analysis are strung together to assemble a 3D terrain.









After creating a landscape from the audio analysis, we spend hours exploring the unique, detailed terrain. Then the artistic side takes over. The technology is only a tool for the human creative process.


We work to find the best layout, angles of view, colors, textures, backgrounds, and lighting to achieve a final piece that reflects the character and spirit of the music. We try many approaches before determining the look that is best.
