Animated films to classical music

Vibrating Strong – Chordophone from IV Suite in E flat major

An artistic animation film made to J. S. Bach’s music. The author is trying to translate sounds into the language of graphics. He is not only interested in the nature of the Bach’s suite but also in the inner structure of the instrument – audible vibrations of the string – and in the elusive relationship between the artist  playing the music and the cello.
