It took me a bit to catch on to the synchronization. Impressive.

The acceleration really does capture the feeling the music invokes as it reaches its peak! When the bike and the rider are finally separated, it as though the music itself was too much for them. And that little part that corresponded to the percussion near the end made me gasp with childish delight.

Reminds me of something you'd see on Newgrounds back in the day. In a good way.

So now I can't find anything supporting it from the play -- perhaps it was just the way we were told to play it -- but we were told to think of it as if the hero was being pursued by the mountain king who was dragging a bad leg. It certainly got the sense of the weirdly emphasized rhythm of the thing.

I see the rider riding a little toboggan, rather than a bike, I think? Either way, this is an extremely cool visualisation.

As much as I like both the piece and the game, I found myself hollering "you can't go backwards, it's a score dammit, it's like the graph of an equation, YOU CAN'T GO BACKWARDS!" Ahem.
