Animation: Sensology

Animator, Michel Gagné, has just premiered his latest film.  Sensology is a visualization of music played by Paul Plimley (piano) and Barry Guy (bass).  The images actually look like the sounds they accompany.  I couldn’t help thinking all the way through the film that the pictures were exactly how the notes sounded.  I’m normally very hard to amuse with shapes that illustrate music, but this piece is short and good.  My favorite part is the machine-like animation near the end.
