Bach's First Cello Suite, Visualized (VIDEO)

Imagine Bach's first Cello Suite as a series of white dots circling and plucking white lines. Now watch it.

Using the math behind string length and pitch, the visualization represents each note as a string to help people understand better "music's underlying structure and subtle shifts," according to creator Alexander Chen.

The visualization is the first piece produced by Baroque.me, created by Google employee Chen as a part of his residency at Eyebeam
