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!
