"Understand Music," an experimental explainer animation

"finally," a creative studio based in Mainz, Germany, produced this beautiful animated video exploring what music is:
Music is a good thing. But what we did not know until we started with the research for this piece: Music is also a pretty damn complex thing. This experimental animation is about the attempt to understand all the parts and bits of it. Have a look. You might agree with our conclusion!

  1.  If you were disappointed that it didn’t actually help you understand music, go watch the BBC “How Music Works” documentary, which I found quite enlightening.

    1. And what was playing had little or nothing to do with the words and graphics being displayed. I did not think it was very effective. But anyone interested in the topic should check out David Byrne’s new book, How Music Works.
