The Arcadians - Overture Lionel Monckton

Piano works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Mozart, Liszt and more have been turned into incredible visualisations
Reading the score along with a piece of music isn't the most scintillating pastime, especially if you can't read music. So why not take advantage of these incredible new visualisations (or 'Audiosculptures') of piano music by Andy Fillebrow.
Each video features a floating circle with lights flowing gently towards it. When each light hits the circle, it appears to sound the individual piano keys in the music. It gives a fantastic and new impression of how melodies are shaped and how the interact with accompaniment.
Confused? Perhaps it's easier to just watch the videos. You can see all of Andy Fillebrow's videos on his YouTube channel, or you can watch his version of Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight Of The Bumblebee below.
