A Visual Representation of Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 update 8/4/2014

Mark Nystrom started out using data from wind speed and direction to create beautiful visual representations.  Now he does the same with music.

These drawings are a performance written in code. Frequency bands were given a visual voice; the marks you see are based on a simple theme which applies the same rules to a system that creates a unique drawing. The music’s depth can be seen in the layers of line and color and if you know the music you may be able to see why one movement’s drawing looks different from another.  – Mark Nystrom

All Pictures were created by Mr. Nystrom.  For more of his amazing work check HERE
