My husband and I attended a seniors’ meeting and luncheon this morning, a very nice group we attend together every month. But the speaker was tedious and then we sang … The Happy Wanderer, This Land is Your Land, and King of the Road… to guitar accompaniment. I am still too young for this.
So I came home and looked for newer music about travel. I like this a lot better!
Each note from the instruments is represented by a geometric shape in the animation; while these shapes move in sync with the song, they also form the parts that create the subway itself.
(Don’t be fooled, as I was, when the train stopped at a station… just wait!)
Dynamics of the Subway is a music video by Haisuinonasa, an alternative Japanese rock group. They have made several such recordings. Most of the online material about the group and their work is in Japanese, but if you are curious the automatic translation applications on your computer will probably give you the gist of it in fractured English.
(Have you ever tried translating a text, say English to French, then French to German, then German back to English? No wonder misunderstandings happen!)
