Interesting... I had to make a transition from defining each "note" to "OMG I can't keep track of this"...once I let go of that, all was well.

This is a really nice antidote to the Something is Wrong on the Internet post.

The on-rails portion of this video reminds me of Audiosurf.

At first I thought how nice, another Mario Paint-esque animation and then suddenly I had to go pick my mind up off the floor because it had been BLOWN.

Well done stuff.

There's something beautiful about this. I've been playing piano and keyboards since I was little, and this is the closest anyone's come to depicting the abstract shapes I see in my mind whenever music plays. Awesome!!!

Yeah, this was wonderful. I think it's the closest portrayal I've seen of how I often visualise music.
