Canon

This short animation explores the “canon”, a form of musical "round" in which each singer picks up the words and tune of a song after the preceding singer. Through a combination of animation and live action, this lively musical film demonstrates, without dialogue, the many patterns that a canon can take depending on the number of participants and the length of the piece of music in question.
