Animusic 2 – Cathedral Pictures

Visit www.animusic.com if you’re interested in watching this amazing Animusic video, along with seven, fourteen, or more other Animusic videos, with better picture and sound quality on DVD.

This is a computer generated video showing robots and self-operating instruments playing classical music inside a large building. There are pipe organs, clarinets, and flutes that emit light-beams as they play notes; some trumpets and tubas affixed to walls, and they stick out when they play individually; a one-stringed rock bass guitar played by robot fingers, two of which slide up and down its neck; a yellow synthesizer; and a drum set, and two large, curved instruments, the hammered dulcimer and the xylophone, played by robots that pivot and slide back and forth to hit their mark.

The music on this piece is from 3 movements of Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” ten-piano suite.
They are:
“Promenade” [from start to 1:41]
“Hut on Fowl’s Legs (Baba Yaga)” [from 1:41 to 3:48]
“The Great Gate of Kiev” [from 3:48 to end]

Do you notice the picture on the bass drums? It is a drawing of the Great Gate of Kiev complete with a bell tower to its right.

Some people have experienced Emerson, Lake & Palmer playing music that is very similar to this one.

At the beginning of this video the animation started before the music, but the animation slowed down to fix the mistake a second later.

I must apologize for the incomplete video. It was supposed to be 1 minute and eleven seconds longer (6:07), with a little display of pyrotechnics and the appearing of two gongs next to the drum set near the end.

BUT GOOD NEWS! I was able to upload a complete copy! Its picture quality is a little lower, though. It is in the video response.

Duration : 0:4:57
