Visualizing Bach

For musicians and non-musicians, it can be very hard to understand what J.S. Bach writes. His music is so intricate, full of subtle patterns and chord progressions hidden among huge masses of notes, that it’s very easy to become overwhelmed. Stephen Malinowski decided to visualize one of Bach’s most intricate solo violin pieces – the prelude of Sonata in E Major – by using dots and a line. It’s much easier to see the patterns that Bach uses.
