HYPNOTIC BACH, by Stephen Malinowski

Music was supposedly  to be a universal language, a kind of transcendent tongue that encodes meanings that mere words cannot capture. At least, until Stephen Malinowski came on stage…

Stephen Malinowski, a composer and programmer, invented a technology called the Music Animation Machine. His software translates the primary formal elements of music—pitch, rhythm, dynamics, harmony, timbre, etc.—into a visual language of interconnected lines, colors, and shapes.

You can read a lot about Malinowski studies and theories and you can spend hours and hours watching more than 350 YouTube videos, all of them made with the Music Animation Machine.

But now, we only want to watch the prelude in C-sharp major from the first book of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Das wohltemperierte Klavier once again.

And again.

And again.

And again…
