Bach to the future  

Somebody (not me) made this with a nifty little freeware app that generates animated displays from MIDI files. I find it really helps me keep track of the different contrapuntal voices. Pretty fun.

Other visualizations I'd like to see: Ockeghem's Missa Prolationem, Hovhaness's Prelude and Quadruple Fugue, Josquin's L'homme Armé masses, Pärt's Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten, Baude Cordier's Tout Par Compas, and Bach's Goldberg canons.

Somehow that animation really reminds me of something out of "Cosmos." Maybe it's the combination of classical and color scheme.

I'd love to see how that program would handle the third "Brandenburg" concerto.

What about the 1712 Overture?

You mean the 1812 Overture?
