Rainer Wehinger’s visual score of Ligeti’s Artikulation

December 12 2014

Rainer Wehinger’s music transcription from the 70’s provides (if not complete notation) an interesting exercise in visualizing sound. If you are into this type of thing you should definitely check it out.

“Rainer Wehinger created the visuals above after the fact as an “aural score,” intending visuals to present a visible “reading” of the sounds of the piece. That makes the score itself closer to the digital visualizations we see as motion graphics works all over the Web (and on our sister site Create Digital Motion). The point isn’t to create a set of instructions by which you can perform a piece, but a visual counterpart that allows you to (presumably) hear it differently.”
