Concerto Grosso Modo

| 6 min

This short animation is a playful introduction to musical notation. Music notes, suddenly infused with life, begin building a score. Working like ants, they assemble one by one the many elements of musical notation. Once the score is completed, the concert can go on, and each note shines as bright as a star.
