Watching it right now. Phenomenal when you consider the time and effort it takes to create them. Y'all ought to try it in HD, it looks so real!!

I'm not sure where you could find the sheet music. You could try looking up the names of the composers on the DVD credits. Also remember that Animusic was computer animation driven by MIDI input files... so you may be able to find the MIDI files, and use some software like Finale or Sibaleus (spelling?) to generate the score.

I've seen commercials for it. Didn't really understand the point of putting them on DVD.

The DVD's carry much longer versions, and there is a technical explanation as to how it is done.....since the images are computer MUSIC generated, it follows that the images had to know ahead of time when to start swinging the drum stick for instance, and not at the instance of the drum beat.

I found it all QUITE fascinating really.

(except for some of the music.)

I have their DVD's, I think there were 3 of them (at least 2 though), and yes, way back in Nov. 13, 2007 Nacho and I discussed this on this site (see Nov. 13th entries)

Well, we definately got 2 DVD's, in two packages, but what they picture as #2 is not what we got. It must be just #1, with an extended version DVD or something. Anyways, when I showed the clips to Nacho, he was impressed enough with them to send for #1. I really like them too.

...do you have any sheetmusic for any of the instruments?

Sheet music? For animated instruments? That don't actually exist?

(What ever happened to sampling?)

No, I mean like, in the bottom one the 1 stringed thing in the front could be like a guitar or something. Or the Lasers in the back could be A keyboard or synthesizer.

yes, they are completely computer generated images....in fact, on the one DVD, they examine the "structure" of the complex drum mechanism and base it sits on, and nothing could be built to both maintain the rapid motions of the gears, that would be required, AND still withstand the weight and bulk of the thing. It isn't really doable for a lot of reasons.
