FAQ Q: I appreciate the animated graphical scores you make; how can I support your work? A: Thank you!

A: It's true. This piece can be played in a very flashy way, but I didn't feel like it. Q: What instrument are you playing? A: This is the Acoustica "Pianissimo" piano. Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself? A: The Music Animation Machine MIDI file player will generate this display; you can get the (Windows) software here: http://www.musanim.com/player/ There are lots of places on the web where you can get MIDI files; I usually go to the Classical Archives site first: http://www.classicalarchives.com/ Q: Could you do a MAM video of _________? A: Please read this: http://www.musanim.com/requests/ Q: What do the colors in the bar-graph score mean? A: The colors indicate the "pitch class" of the notes; that is, every A-flat is a certain color (blue), every B-flat is a certain color (violet), etc. The piece is in the key of A-flat, so there's blue at the beginning and end. The choice of colors is based on the "circle of fifths," which you can read about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_of_fifths This method of coloring notes is described more here: http://www.musanim.com/mam/pfifth.htm Because this form of coloring reflects tonality, the places where the piece moves into another key are easily visible; here's a picture of the whole piece: http://www.musanim.com/img/ChopinEtudeOpus10no10.gif
