Using 12 cameras and data visualization, this project animated Sir Simon Rattle’s baton flicks at 120 frames per second. What if we could capture what music looks like? Not just how it sounds, but how it moves? Digital artist Tobias Gremmler did just that. Using motion capture to track the movements of London Symphony Orchestra conductor Sir Simon Rattle, he created this hypnotic video. As Rattle’s arms rise and his body sways, each movement is tracked and animated, creating sweeping patterns of light.
