Musical Rollercoaster

Zurich Chamber Orchestra

Great music can be a roller coaster of emotion, both figuratively and literally. This new CG spot for the Zurich Chamber Orchestra is a conceptual winner. Watch a quality version on No Fat Clips. Wasn’t able to find production company credits for the commercial but the agency is Euro RSCG Switzerland.

    we did a musical rollercoaster of the tv show Little Einsteins in 2003. It is exactly like this.

    Wow, that was simply amazing. The roller-coaster idea is excellent at conveying the thrills and energy that classical music has to offer.

    You folks need to try the AudioSurf PC game, then. Nothing like playing with one of Beethoven’s symphonies to make for a challenge.

    That reminded me of an animation done for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra by Tristam Sparks. He completed it around 2000 I think. I studied with Tristam at design school and I remember seeing the NZSO piece in a cinema in Wellington. I bumped into him later and ranted about this piece i’d seen and how people actually clapped in the theatre, it was then that he told me he’d made it. I had no idea.

    Won a stack of awards and they made a sequel. Both can be viewed from this page on Tristam’s site…

    I loved it, and I have to say I’m a little jealous. I wish I’d thought of that one. Animation may very well be the best artform for visual interpretations of instrumental music. I’d like to see it done more often.
