ZKO Rollercoaster // GREAT EMOTIONS


Visualization of the 1st violin of the 2nd symphony, 4th movement by Ferdinand Ries in the shape of a rollercoaster. The camera starts by showing a close-up of the score, then focuses on the notes of the first violin turning the staves into the winding rail tracks of the rollercoaster. The notes and bars were exactly synchronised with the progression in the animation so that the typical movements of a rollercoaster ride match the dramatic composition of the music.

don't you feel that 1 minute is lengthy for this concept?

The length of the concept is a result of the original score combined with typical features of a rollercoaster ride. It 's not only about a short ride over a random trail of sheet music and that's it. The agency and ZKO delivered a composition by Ferdinand Ries which was basically perfect for a rollercoaster concept. The final result is a parallel experience of listening to music, experiencing a typical fun fair rollercoaster ride perfectly built and animated to the composition's tempo and dramaturgy and if you capable to read sheet music it's 100% synchronized to the first violine. All this will perfectly transport the final claim "GREAT EMOTIONS" [german: "GROSSE GEFÜHLE"]. Overall the ride feels much shorter than one minute.

viva la animación!

I agree with jagadeesh. It's way too long. I was bored halfway through. Interesting idea, nevertheless.
