Journeys Soundslide

I haven’t been as good about keeping up with multimedia as I once was, so I apologize if this has been done before, but I really enjoyed this soundslides by Michael Morain who works here at the Des Moines Register. I thought it was simple but effective and enjoyable (probably more so if I could read music).

Des Moines native Linda Robbins Coleman compared part of her “Journeys” to the sounds of “a peg-legged pirate who happens upon some kind of Spanish festival.” Listen to the excerpt she described – and follow along with a simplified version of the printed score. (Or hear the real thing at the Des Moines Community Orchestra concert on Sunday.)

  1. Music is great, but to be honest…. repetition of the same thing…the most unexciting to look at…

    I would go for panning horizontally along the scores, fast…slow… following the rythem/note…do some zoom…. anything.

    picture of the actual page, maybe, with some hand written notes on it… .to break the monotony…Anything that show some effort.
