Symphonic Complexities by Anna Katharina Reinbold
This visualisation quantifies the instrumental contribution to the final movement of six classic symphonies. Each visual @project.is based on the classical seating arrangement of an orchestra and considers the number and kind of notes played, thus @project.showing the complexity involved in playing each of these pieces.
Each instrument is represented by a ribbon comprised of eight lines signifying the keys of an octave. Originating at the @project.seated position and moving towards the conductor at the centre of the arrangement. The weight and curvature of the @project.stroke is determined by the number of notes played throughout the final movement.
