My goal is to create a 3D animation that illustrates the movements and patterns produced in the air when Bach's Chromatic Fugue is played on a pipe organ. By combining the visual element of swirling patterns inspired by pipe organ acoustics simulation with imagery that the music evokes in the mind, I aim to present a surrealistic soundscape that visually depicts the boundless creative energy and freedom of music and mind combined. I hope to create an animation that is aesthetically interesting and to inspire imagination in viewer.
