Ramin Nasibov, a designer and art director with an interesting and quirky Twitter feed, tweeted this short (2:12) animated graphic score/musical visualization of Tchaikovsky's "Dance Of The Sugarplum Fairy that was created by Doodle Chaos."

Absolutely gorgeous. Must have taken a lot of time to get all of that to synchronise, particularly the wee guys going off the screen and catapulting back exactly on cue. Not even procedurally generated: it's pixel ballet!

Lots of coordinating work, simple drawings, beautiful music. Excellent results.

I like it, even though they don't seem to be hitting precisely. Those tiny cyclists have soul!

I'd only seen "In the Hall of the Mountain King" before. But this one is pretty great, and some of the synching is amazing.

Thank you, I followed a bunch of tweets and thought I'd got to the end.

Awesome. To really appreciate this, it may help to check out the online app with which it was created.

this one for Alan Walker's "Fade" has the rider and the sled separated a third of the way in and they're both used for different beats and tunes of the song, it's impressive, especially since in that game once the rider and the sled separates it's harder to predict how they'll react on each land and jump. and the bits where the sled is used to knock the rider into the next line is amazing.

if this is your type of thing, here's a top ten list of tracks made in 2017, DoodleChaos' Mountain King track is at #2

My favorite of these (in part because I love Caravan Palace) is the "Lonely Digger" one.
