There’s something about music or a soundtrack that really enhances what would otherwise be just a silent movie. So I plan to add music to my visualizations as time and inspiration allow. Here’s an example that I did a week or two back. The original movie was 24 seconds long, but now it’s been slowed down to accommodate an atmospheric soundtrack.
A few weeks ago I discovered noteflight.com, a website that lets you create musical scores. I’ve always wanted to use scoring software, but never got around to it until – well you know, the price was right.
Years ago I wrote a computer game called Boulder Dash. The music for that was composed in a very basic soundtrack editor I wrote for the Atari 800, and was never actually played on a real-world instrument. I’ve always wanted to convert that music to a real score and hear what it would sound like on, say, the piano.
