Music Math

“This is a visualization of Beach Boys vocals inspired by the physics of church bells,” Alexander Chen, who works at the Google Creative Lab, explains over at Vimeo. “Using a mathematical relationship between a the circumference of a circular surface and pitch, I wrote code that draws a circle for each note of the song.”

The song, by the way, is “You Still Believe in Me,” from Pet Sounds, and the result is gorgeous. Enjoy.
