About Music:Eyes

„Honestly, my students [...] learn more about the music from these animations than from any of the six textbooks I have tried in the past.“

Dr. Casey J. Hayes (Chair of Music at Franklin College, Indiana) 

„It really is overwhelming how much students prefer learning music with your animations.“  

Dr. Brad Garton (Music Professor at Columbia University, New York)

„This gets them right into the music...short of learning an instrument, I've never seen anything engage students like this.“  

Dr. James Isaacs (Music Teacher at Hull's School, Zurich)

„Musicians and Non-Musicians alike will benefit greatly from creating Music:Eyes animations together. They will learn to grasp complex music cognitively and emotionally, take artistic decisions and enter into a fruitful aesthetic conversation.“

Eric Booth, Leading American Music Educator, Recipient of the Americans for the Arts 2015 Arts Education Award, El Sistema expert, Juillard School of Music, inventor of „Teaching Artist“ concept

On the upcoming new Music:Eyes platform, students and experts - musicians and non-musicians alike, children, adolescents and adults alike - can create their own animations of music. Their visual interpretations and compositions can be shared online on the Music:Eyes platform and, if wanted, performed live. And they can be enjoyed in a simple interactive player with selected feature choices that allow for either a profound learning experience or an immersive sensory fusion experience between music and art.

Animations can be simple or more sophisticated and will be possible in 3D, VR, with different camera angles and with entirely new graphic designs that developers around the world can build and sell on the platform.

Music:Eyes is at the same time a new art form and a powerful way to grasp the language and art of music - it's also called a GPS for music and a score for listeners. While classical music has traditionally been in the center of Music:Eyes, it is not restricted to one genre of music.

The initiative, which is supported by major music education initiatives worldwide, is based on the "Music Animation Machine" of pioneer music visualizer Stephen Malinowski who is a founding member of the Music:Eyes team.

So far, Music:Eyes...

...prototype "Bebop" that allows for student authored visual interpretations has in 2016 been successfully tested and used by Columbia University, New York; by the New York Philharmonic Education Department and by Hull's School Zurich

...has reached over 140 million people on Stephen's Youtube channel "smalin"

...has been used by teachers on all levels worldwide

...has been used in education programs of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Seongnam Arts Center (South Korea) and other renowned institutions

...has been featured in live performances at Carnegie Hall New York, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Musikverein Wien, TEDxAmsterdam and TEDxZurich by artists such as Björk, Andreas Scholl, Vilde Frang, Etienne Abelin and many others

...Stephen Malinowski's work has been shown  in art exhibits a.o. at the MoMA New York 

Music:Eyes and Stephen Malinowski have been featured on NPR, Huffington Post, The Guardian, "Sound of Europe" by the European Music Council, at the "Art of Education" Conference 2014 in Hamburg and at Classical:NEXT conference 2015.

What's Next


Music:Eyes will be ready for you shortly.

Music:Eyes has teamed up with renowned music educator Irena Müller-Brozovic. Together, we are in the process of building a new visual composition tool and interactive player that will be the basis of a platform for visual music and various educational programs. There's an early web-only prototype accessible on bebop.com.

 

A "Visionary Circle" or pilot consortium of Music:Eyes founding partners will be the first to put the software to use in special customized projects. Important arts institutions worldwide such as the Konzert Theater Bern (Switzerland), Basel Sinfonietta (Switzerland), Tonhalle-Orchestra Zurich (Switzerland), the Musikkollegium Winterthur (Switzerland), the Musikkonservatorium Zurich (Switzerland), the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (USA) will start delivering M:E special projects from Spring 2017 onwards.

In parallel, Music:Eyes is building a program for schools to join. Stay tuned for more information and contact us if you're interested in joining the exclusive pilot consortium or would like to know more about the future of Music:Eyes: info@musiceyes.org
