Virtual Music Box

The Whitney Music Box is a musical realization of the motion graphics of John Whitney as described in his book Digital Harmony. The dots are arranged to trigger notes on a chromatic scale when they pass the line. The dots are each timed to a different speed, but they synchronize themselves at constant intervals. Its a bit hard to describe, but you'll love seeing it in action. There are 17 music box variations.

This is a repost from October 12, 2006. That was exactly ten years ago, and it was my first post at Neatorama. Alex had linked some things from my site before, and I had contributed material to a co-blogging project, but this was the first post under my own account. I figured it’s been long enough so that readers won’t mind seeing it again. It’s been a great ten years!
