"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!

     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.

    I was just thinking “Shit, this sucks. Of course you have to understand music to appreciate music”.

      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.
