NHK名曲アルバム+(プラス)のために制作。

16世紀の音楽家マヌエル・カルドーゾによって作曲された無伴奏の合唱曲「レクイエム」の視覚化を行った。

この楽曲は複数の旋律がそれぞれ異なるピッチ(音の高さ)とリズムで奏でられる

「ポリフォニー(多声音楽)」の様式を持つ。

6人または4人の男女混成合唱においてそれぞれの声がたどる旋律を、筆記体の描線が音高・音長にあわせて動く

アニメーションを用いて表現し、複数の旋律が交わるポリフォニー様式を

聴覚だけでなく視覚的に理解できるようにした。

Visualization of "Requiem," an unaccompanied choral piece composed by the 16th century composer Manuel Cardoso. The piece is in the style of polyphony, in which multiple melodies are played with different pitches and rhythms.

 

Each melody of the mixed chorus of 2 men and 4 women is represented by an animation in which the stroke of the pen moves with the pitch and length of the note, so that the polyphonic style in which multiple melodies intersect can be understood visually as well as aurally.

 

This video work was produced for the Japanese TV program "NHK Masterpiece Album + (Plus)," which is based on the concept of appreciating classical music from a new perspective through collaboration with video artists.
