One of Nashville’s legendary women is Anne Roos. The other day she sent out, in her characteristic way, a little something for everybody to enjoy.
That’s it, up top: the first bit of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony as visualized using Line Rider, a simple computer game from ten years ago. DoodleChaos is the YouTuber who cooked this up. Much more to see at his YouTube channel.
Thanks, Anne, for a wild ride of 4 minutes and 25 seconds.
PS If this made you want to hear the whole thing, the way it just did for me, here’s a full dose of the 5th Symphony, in a performance from 2012. A commenter on this performance notes that Daniel Barenboim conducts the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra without a score, from memory. I know: he has one job. But wow, what a job it is.
PSS And if you’re just all of a sudden jonesing for Line Rider, you can start doodling your own rides right here.
