Classical music visualized

Oct 5, 2016

Artist Nicholas Rouguex visualized some musical scores in his project Off the Staff.

I can’t read music but I can parse it. The talent of reading music has always escaped me which is a little ironic considering I grew up in a musical family. However, I’ve always enjoyed how sheet music looks so I took a shot at visualizing the notes from musical scores and the result is this series of posters.

Notes were placed in a circular layout, evenly spaced. Each colored circle represents a note, and the size of the circle represents the length of the note. Colors represent instruments. Put it all together, and you get these diagrams that look like tie dye.
