Crystallized music

from the Giant Steps storyboard

According to Michal Levy Goethe once said (or wrote, for that matter) “Architecture is crystallized music“. So she took John Coltrane‘s jazz piece “Giant steps” and created an astonishing animation to visualize the tune with abstract architectural shapes.

The work is not exactly brand new, she did it as her graduation project for the visual communication department of the “Belazel Academy of Art and Design” (Jerusalem) in 2001 but I came across her homepage today and thought I’d better blog this 😉

So watch the movie here (2:15 min.), make sure you have your sound up and running and probably bring a little patience as well, the file is 4.8MB and might take a couple of seconds to load (depending on your internet connection of course).

It is wonderful, is it not?
