development of The Orchestra

Someone has turned several great classical works into colourful data visualisations – and the results are absolutely stunning.

Off the Staff is a project devised by Nick Rougeux, which visualises notes from music scores. He’s managed to create a completely beautiful visual representation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, in which the circle of colours grows in size and vibrancy as we move through the four movements.

“Each dot represents a note in the score,” Nick explains “Pitch is indicated by the distance from the centre of the image, while the time at which the note occurs is given by the angle from the 12 o'clock position.

“The size of the dot indicates the duration of the note, and the colour of the dot is different for each instrument. The colours of the dots are different for each instrument, and are selected from a complementary palette designed to reflect the theme of the piece.”
