Random Cool Video: Animated Sheet Music for Miles Davis' So What

The advances in digital sheet music over the years have been stunning, including sheet music that ‘plays’ like a piano roll as the timer scrolls across the screen. But this is something different about this great piece of ‘live’ sheet music – it literally appears on the page as the music flows, adding a dynamic sense of adventure to the familiar ‘So What’ from Miles Davis Kind of Blue.

According to Dan Cohen (not OUR Dan Cohen):

I wasn’t going to go looking for the drum notations (sorry Jimmy Cobb), but I did find the sheet music for Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly, Bill Evans, Paul Chambers.

So he took the sheet music and animated it one note at a time to go along with the music. It is amazing, and hypnotic! Enjoy!

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life – I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a ‘Laptop First’ person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs … and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies … but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
