Andante, Animated Characters on the Piano to Visualize Musical Motion

01Andante, Animated Characters on the Piano to Visualize Musical Motion

“Andante” by MIT’s Tangible Media Group is an exploration in musical motion, intended to visualize the bodily experience and natural rhythms of music.

Andante visualizes as animated characters walking along the piano keyboard that appear to play the physical keys with each step. Based on a view of music pedagogy that emphasizes expressive, full-body communication early in the learning process, Andante promotes an understanding of the music rooted in the body, taking advantage of walking as one of the most fundamental human rhythms.
