I'd go with the original bar one. This version is pretty but too visually noisy to me. In particular, in the motive illustrated with an animated line connecting the notes, the visual movement of the line does not correspond to the "movement" of the sound.
Also I think this visually complex animation would overwhelm the live performances for the audience. The bar graph version takes a subtle backseat to the performance, illustrating what's happening but not seizing one's attention so violently.
Anecdotes are the refuge of those who willfully ignore what happens in the aggregate. Did you know that the top students of the lower fifth in income households end up making less money than the worst students of the higher fifth income families? Where's your evidence of equal opportunity outside of handpicked anecdotes?
The balls are not meant to represent fingers. Even if people had 11 fingers, the balls often move in ways that are impossible to do with fingers. My focus was on illuminating what was going on in the music, irrespective of the practical matter of fingering. What's the point of making a computer animation of music if you just replicate the way music is played in reality? At certain times there are 11 balls simply because I felt that many were needed to cleanly get to all the notes.
Thomas Sowell thinks that if Iran attacked us, we'd surrender like Japan in WWII? That's a jaw-dropper. Has he been to the US?
Sowell's early stuff was good but he's gone off the rails.
Yes I'm conflating the two. You're the one who brought up consent while seeming to claim I've given my consent to the founders (justifying spending on things they wanted) and not to any politician I've actually voted for. Do the founders really get the last word on how to arrange society? Also you have not justified why taking my money to pay for what the founders wanted is magically A-Okay if it's immoral under any other circumstances.
The actual effectiveness of Keynes' ideas are an unrelated matter. Communist philosophy is not a logical consequence of Keynes, which is precisely what you said. There's no reasonable way to get from counter-cyclical government spending to mitigate market failures to price-fixing and state ownership, among other things that communism actually entails. Can we not discuss the merits of Keynes' ideas in a manner that does not involve applying the worst possible labels in the geopolitical lexicon?
What freedoms have Obama infringed upon?
(Deficit) = (Spending) - (Revenue). Increase Revenue and you decrease Deficit. What you're saying might make sense if spending increased when revenue increased, but it's not. Spending is being cut at the same time revenues are being increased. So I have no idea what you're talking about.
What you said is not wrong but it maybe it's not the best way to think about it. Complex numbers (numbers involving multiplying and adding square root of -1) are incredibly useful in a variety of areas of mathematics, physics, engineering, which is all the justification they need. "What they represent" is hard to describe. One way: why should "numbers" exist on a line, a 1-dimensional space? Why not 2-dimensional numbers? Complex numbers are a way to makes numbers 2D.
I hate to be negative but this animation style is distressing. When we have a line moving the impression is the line is producing the sound. But the side effect is no correlation between the velocity of the line and the energy of the music. Instead, it should be the circles or rectangles of the notes themselves are "producing" the sound. I.e., when the trill happens, we should see rapid discrete animation of notes appearing in space, not a line wrapping around existing structures.
Obligatory question: do you plan to do the first movement as well?
Wow I've never heard this piece before. Is it just me or is there something about this that's a tad unusual for Bach?
Wow of all your videos I'm surprised this one isn't getting more views. My taste must be the outlier. I'm probably 10% of those views...
When I close my eyes the music is going somewhere, but your animation has it obediently, patiently passing by. What if there was more of a sense that the "camera" is trying to keep up? And I feel showing all the pitches coming makes it seem more rigid and mechanical, why not have the line seeming to carve it's own path?
