Music was appreciable when I had sight as it is now; the loss is when an artist adds to the music with visual images. Even when people in an attempt to be kind attempt to describe the addition it generally looses in translation. I don’t know if you are impaired Rahavin1 but to dismis as though you are in the first peorson Bettoven’s accomplishment so authoratativly is laughable. Who are you? What have youproduced? As for your poet- Those opening notes. So simple, yet so genius. I wish someday I could do the same thing. Such visionary scope is truly awe-inspiring. beutifeul This is not just music, it is political commentary. @lolyjack – More peolpe your age agree with you than you know. Beethoven was not ‚one of the herd‘ either. Many don’t like classical music (at any age) because they – have not been exposed to it; – do not know how to listen to it; – associate it with a particular social class.. Connoisseurship is a choice. Familiarity & knowledge leads to geater appreciation & often more enjoyment. A local music society, teacher, or orchestra can connect you with other young people who enjoy classical music. Wow… This must be very complicated. I love this stuff. Listen to it when I take a shit this music helps me to focus in my studies!! THANK YOU! Magnifique ! 🙂 @themaster1154 i didnt realize that talking about the basis of art and the senses was a nerdy thing to do. Good retort though Beethoven is one of the greatest compositor in this world and one of the biggest myth. Writing symphonies being deaf is just … „So Divine“. I thought I was thinking, but I said, „amazing!“ outloud. AMAZING. this Symphony is so fucking awesome and amazing this is amazing!!!!!! I always have this weird dream i can go back and here all the great classical pieces played for the first time this would be extremely hard to play on guitar hero… Es hermoso beethoven 4 eva jeez the graph is awesome yyeeeesssss !!!!!! e questo è uno degli yes piu enffatizzati del mondo !!!!!! Why is Beethoven always so amazing? HELLO EVERYONE The metal militia will be attacking Justin Bieber’s video (justin bieber baby ft. ludacris) on the FOURTH OF JULY! Assemble all fans of good music in every genre! (Jazz, Metal, Classical, Classic Rock etc.) On said date leave a comment giving your thoughts on JB, close the comment with -MM. Copy and paste this comment to all the good band videos! (Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, led zeppelin, black sabbath, classical composers etc.) Thumbs up this comment this is just fucking untouchable How come everything blurred when I was listening to this for while? and i had my eyesight check a while back and its perfect? @SuperElm lol 4:51 It looks like someone is waving at me beethoven was a genious. awesome. this grafic looks so comlicated, even without the notes. when i pressed play i was lost in a sea a peace and happiness and to what seemed like an eternity of listening was only a mere minute and a half just goes to show how beautiful music can lull you into a whole new world. This is a very original way of presenting music! I like how it reveals patterns in the music mathematically and also demonstrates how complex the piece actually is. No offence, I really like everything you’ve done here, The one thing I’d change is the speed, everything seems a little too fast, in the majority of your videos. why does this have a few thousand and akon and those people have millions of views? we have become brainswashed by the media. i love the 4 tones played by the oboe/clarinet (?) at 0:34 . @Interioroutbreak69 It has nothing to do with being brainwashed. You think you’re making some kind of groundbreaking statement but you just sound like an idiot. Most people have simply fallen away from classical music. It isn’t that hard to imagine that it’s gotten replaced by *gasp* newer and more current music. Most decent music videos have millions of views dude due to multiple plays and sheer popularity. Nothing new. Get over it. @XSilvenX yeah but take the 10 most popular musical artists of this time and at least 50% of them will be extremely untalented and or promote the wrong things. Its not about art anymore, its about money. @smalin I know, right? But I hope no poet goes deaf no one should because they would lose the experience of hearing the beautiful pieces in the world. @Interioroutbreak69 The „top 10“ as most people already know is bullsh1t and very subjective so using that as the basis of any type of debate is simply not good enough. Point is, there are many GOOD songs that are underrated and don’t have these millions of views. That’s why it’s called mainstream. Being the best doesn’t necessarily mean being the most popular. I do agree that most of the top artists are quite talentless but this is America, you have to expect pop music to win over classical. … This guy was deaf?!? Who the hell would dislike this video!? Seriously! Ok..I’m more into punk music just outing that out there but this is amazing lol!! Putting** that out there I love this video! It’s so amazing to see the music and just hear it. It’s lovely. This is music! @XSilvenX There’s nothing for people to get over in order to enjoy and appreciate this stuff. You seem to ignore the fact that there is plenty of *new* orchestral music, either as stand-alone pieces or – gasp – used as incidental music in almost every new Hollywood blockbuster that comes out even these days. Sometimes trumpets, violins and flutes can convey much more of a sense of feeling than a drum machine and some yadda-yadda-ing over the top of it. @BizMarkUK What exactly is your point….? My music library consists of a ridiculous range of genres so yes, I know there are still orchestral pieces done (movies, games, you name it…) but Beethoven is classical and this song doesn’t really offer much in terms of an orchestra *__*. Maybe the line between Classical and orchestral is blurred for you. Either way you must have not read the comment I was responding to because you’re taking on a completely different argument. I’m trying for days now to find this piece, this melody is stuck in my head: d d e cis cis break fis fis gis f f i dont know if it is by mozart or not (sound a little bit like a star wars soundtrack) @smalin – this may be true, but when I read the written word, I hear it on my ear, so reading is very like hearing the work read alout (though their may be an arrangement of words upon the page not conveyed by the spoken sound). Perhpas this is not true of all readers… I do not know. @smalin – To elaborate, I believe Beethoven ‚heard‘ the music in his ‚mind’s ear‘, so to speak. Nevertheless, a remarkable man with an exceptionally well developed musical ability. Thank you for posting this; the graph enhances my enjoyment and understanding of the structure of the piece. @Rahavin1 & smalin – ‚a mathematical expression holding artictic value’… An interesting concept, but one that mathematicians would readily embrace, I’m certain. As an artist, if I become blind, I will make sculpture and/or reliefs and will ’see‘ it in my mind’s eye .A bit tangential, but on YouTube somewhere their is a vid that vividly exibits the underlying mathematical structure to many objects we consider ‚beautiful‘ no doubt at least in part because of their proportions. GENIUS!!!! A true masterpiece! :)) BRAVO! @Rahavin1As someone who writes many forms of poetry I must disagree with this statement that it must be read aloud. Certain poetry, yes, is designed to be read aloud however, Poe is a great example. Much of my poetry is constructed around the concept creating images in the reader’s head and when I’ve heard my poetry read aloud and it’s very distracting because it is a very personal form of art and to hear someone else’s interruption of the poetry can ruin mine best symphony ever made =D ganz schön schnelle Interpretation aber auch ziemlich gut!! Absoloutley remarkable! I always listen to Beethoven to calm down, and this piece was truly amazing! Your music is still amazing Ludwig 🙂 this matches my mood oddly enough @superhashka you realise this songs about death? @smalin i agree. i also write poetry and i think reading it aloud will spoil it… La escuché una vez y se me quedó en la cabeza. Por eso amo a Beethoven! this reminded me of only one thing… Guitar Hero pure geneius theres a funky version of this thats played all the time, anyone know the title? @danzelled1 It’s called A fifth of beethover, by Walter Murphy. @danzelled1 A fifth of Beethoven WOw Amazing. Truly captures the music’s essence while also showing you how crazy this man was. XD And to think he’s def. Haha. Amazing. Thank you! I just had the urge to hear this this morning, looked it up and found this. At first I thought it looked tedious and wasn’t going to watch while I listened, but after a few seconds…. what a great idea. I love the intensity in the first minute of this peice. Thumbs up. Also, My oppinion is that his loss effected his composing in a very profound way. From my own experience in studying the his compostions it is clear that he went through a few very distinct phases.A s do most. I believe that after he started lossing his hearing, he was no longer limited by the confines of the technical and mechanical limitations of the instruments of the time i.e. piano. As a proffessional performer of his pieces I can intuit a clear revolutionary, glorious, positive impact. And also in my oppinion his hearing loss even coencides with the use of a literal directive, on his behalf, towards way more passionate and emotive music. Just alone in the use of way more colorful usage of instrumentation combonations, also if one reads or has the ability to read, all of the subtle nuances in the scoring of his compostions, starting the second phase, culminating in the final stage of total deafness. Yet he was still composing? The most revolutional technically demanding music I sure have a lot of oppinions don’t I? Anyway I dont think any one will ever know for sure what effect his hearing loss had on him. Id feel pretty devistated if the one sense that is suppose to be my gift was taken from me. Probably make me quite a bit more passionate in my own composing. I know Ive had great loss in my life as do we all, and it has deffinetely affected my self expression with music. Im no Beethoven though. And one dosn’t realy need to read the music to see all the dynamic contratsts, the so called „emotives“ that he wrote into his music. With a psuedo-refined ear its quite achievable to hear these things. Thats why we feel his music, because of all the so called „emotives“ in his music. Which if you listen to a wide range of his compositions especially the Piano and Trio Sonatas, there is a very clear sort of evolution thats occuring. where art, over form takes a lead roll. Also a true musician needn’t hear any music to be able to „hear“ the music. The „chords“ and tonalities are all processed in a different part of the brain for those of us that have played and read music most of our lives. Im not for ar against reading music to enrich ones musical experience. For me though its nice being able to look at a score that ive never heard before and „hear“ it in my mind. Those of us that compose can relate, in that we sometimes write music without instruments at hand. I literally start getting chills around 6:12. @stark1770 I think maybe „classical“ is, although broadly-used, a good category for this music. I often hear people say „Hey, let’s listen to classical music“. i love the cool little linie thingies!! 😀 @kaine180 To you they may not be the same. But you’d probably be fascinated to find out hiw truly similar the two are. @smalin I hope your joking here, cuz I „love“ Pachelbel and Dvorak at the same time. @smalin Why not people viewing you tube? Would there be a way to show dynamic contrast in this video?the vid clearly shows that different instruments are playing either relatively high or low. but not when a cressendos or dimmuendos is occuring. Yes the more instruments would ussually indicate more volume from the orchesra. But a very important part of his compositions were the very detailed dynamic markings that he wrote into his music. The so called „emotives“. I dont „see“ that here. Maybe im missing it. Good music THANK you so much man for posting this. this is so interesting brokencyde is better. wats this song called @3141592654369 no. 5 xD NOssa esta demais parabens muito bom trabalho Brokencyde is terrible, all the stupid little kids at my school listen to that noise @brycehun ur retard? @stark1770 there are several definitions of the word „orchestral.“ One meaning of the word most definitely identifies an ensemble setting. „Orchestrated“ is synonymous with „arranged“ and would not apply in the context that you mentioned. Similarly „symphony“ and „symphonic“ actually apply to a particular genre of orchestral rep, not the ensemble. If you have any kind of music degree I’d be inclined to hear a more substantive argument but any classically trained musician would disagree with you. this video its verry good!!! Love it 🙂 Thank you ! @matzartify To me orchestral is not a term used by „Classical“ musicians in a broad sense. When we use the word orchestral were speaking on very specific terms. For example the Orchestral suites of Bach. I said orchestral is to vague in the sense that it was being used. Orchestral in the sense of being directed or arranged would also fit to a degree. Cleary not what I was speaking about though. The ensemble setting could be orchestrated but not orchestral unless string instruments are used. @matzartify Unless that ensemble without strings sounds orchestral in nature. the composer may do that on occasion. I was trying to help some people gain idea of some of the lingo that us classical musicians use. I mean main stream is still considering Vivaldi to be „Classical“ I also use the word orchestral as an adjective quite frequently. For example i might say „that wind quintent sounds very orchestral“ By the way definitely have my share of what’d you call it „classical training“? Also if one wants to call this orchestral they can continue to use that. However if one once to be correct in identifying Betthoven’s second movement to his fifth symphony . A symphonic piece clalssical music. @stark1770 and the first(this one)and the third, or any movement of any symphony that he wrote. This Bethoven,(as you know) not hollywood sound track @matzartify I can’t speak for every CONSERVATORY educated artist myself, but Im honored, to in all my days to finally have met one, maybe you can help me with my spelling too;) @stark1770 I suppose orchestra could be could be „wind“ orchetstra or „brass“ orchestra if there were enough players. But Im not sure if i would use „orchestral“ to describe them. Anyway, I hope that my „spectral disorded“ did not interfere with my true intentions. @stark1770 We were Initially talking about this composition in particular not the ensemble anyway, Yes this ensemble playing is an orchestral ensemble. any body can tell you that. But this piece can and is played in many different forms. Ive even heard it transcribed for the penny whistle. At which point does this specific syymphony become orchestral, if 30 penny whistles got together of different sizes and played all the parts. Orchestral does refer to the size of ensemble playing the piece. @stark1770 Not the piece or even a specific form/genre of composition ,except when it is specifically written that way. i.e. an orchestral suite, but then again in theory couldnt you play an orchestral suite transcribed for the harpsichord? beautiful.. This is just crazy…. Perfect For Guitar hero but a bit faster 😀 Thumbs up if you think it would be perfect 😛 @matzartify By the way, why not get a dictionary and a thesaurus, look up the two phrases-Orchestral music and Symphonic music, then get back to me with your findings. @matzartify It would be advisable (I suspect you haven’t) for you to read all posted comments concerning this apparently hot topic. You might gain some percpective that you didn’t have prior to your post. A fantastic example of data visualisation. Love it! It looks like my Light-O-Rama sequence for my Christmas lights. Do not listen to this if you have a stomach ache…. DUN DUN DUN DUN!! genius! luv Beethoven! I don’t understand, if it’s performed by the Royalty Free Classical Music Symphony Orchestra, how can it be synthetic?? It *sounds* synthetic to me (flutes @ 1:00 and 2:26 have no idiosyncrasies and strings @ 3:46 and 3:49) … more than likely exposing my ignorance here, but it sounds synthetic to me. …Oh, brilliant video by the way 🙂 @astrumdeus It wasn’t sold to me as being synthetic … but these days, who knows. no me gusta bethoven thanks for the QandAs i was about to ask some questions but i saw that lol thanks. @Cellogamer i dont get it DUN DUN DUN DUN!!!! i usually say that when something bad happens 😀 I love how no one would expect a cute oboe solo in the midst of such an intense piece. Luv the grapchis 😛 @Longgun46 🙂 hmmm wow…thats all i gotta say… (and thanks for the visualization since im more the visual than the auditive type 🙂 @reynaldomadariaga entonces en primer lugar no lo veas y mucho menos opines @Longgun46 me too @twosidesofevil This is real music! Hands up if you think this is better than the trash created by Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga! Awesome 😀 Star Trek this is epic it reminds me of guitar hero I really dig what you’re doing here. Cheers! 🙂 My favorite classical piece : } 2:08-2:15 My Fav Part!!!! The perfect song! @d4nthem4n87 What? My favourite top 5 musical compositions 1. Beethoven 5th Symphony 2. Beethoven Ode to joy 3. Bach toccata in D minor 4. Beethoven 9th Symphony 5. Carmens habenera @d4nthem4n87 All of it! Does flute play in this song? Hey, where can I purchase the download for this piece? I really like it! @pauleewhitingartist Perfect timing; I’m uploading a version for downloading right now. I’ll add an item to the FAQ later today. It confuses me that most of the time the music sounds very serious and dramatic, but then all of a sudden it changes to a fancy, light, much happier tone. @Parkerkun Humans are complicated, that’s what makes them so interesting. @myprayer99 yes, you can hear it at 1:00 together with the strings ahhh… now something soothing to listen to! I step foot in the car, and all i can hear is swearing and whining in some ridiculous song. Why not have a classical music radio station! seriously who the fuck clicked dislike…. @TheHakhon Oh, thank you. Most classical compositions have mostly strings, right? justin bieber sucks @TheOlvaid Creo que estas muy correcto, es bien si no gustan Beethoven, pero, quierro saber porque. A migo, Beethoven es un person muy imporatante en mi vida. A los tiempos cuando la monde es mal, Beethoven es aqui. El habla a nosotros que aye personas en este monde que son muy bonitos en la cabesa. Y este es especial.( Lo siento que mi espanol es muy mal, soy de Michigan E.U. ) if that’s synthetic I’m never playing in an orchestra again. Whaaaaa Oo Fantastic!! What key is this song in please? @MyxHarnett Look at the score (see the FAQ). @MyxHarnett C minor i love this one @stugetz0 It’s not 😛 wooow, hay que tener BUEN oído para poder armar todo ese gráfico!! Congratulations!! nice piece of music ooh, lots of colors 😛 Fucking great. ^^ felt smarted just watching the bars light up hahah such a wonderful song. people dont appreciate fine music anymore 🙁 Thanks for sharing that trick… click to mpiffy.com to download mp3s from youtube! @jamesninja36 Your bang on right. im 18 and loving this. i lurve this song @jamesninja36 you’re right on the money. i’m a metalhead and i love beethoven. Love It this is soo cool it should be a screen saver or sompthing. oh love the song!!!! its allways good to know that a teen can still appreciate the classical music, helps me think. @jamesninja36 Hardly, fine music has simply changed with the times, while this is undoubtably the cornerstone of an era, that era no longer exists. Saying people don’t appreciate fine music because this is no longer loved by masses is like saying people don’t appreciate fine clothes any more because no one wears Victorian dresses Thnk you for your job and yours explications I’m seeing the music!!! Great! Just a masterpiece. omg this is my most favorite song. listen to it all the time. Beethoven was a true genius. This is a Monster of music!!!! Genius!!!! Master !!!Big!!!! my favorite piece of classical music bar none, such amazing sounds, it uplifts as no other piece of music. what an amazing man this was to create such a piece of work. Its An Art Masterpiece! Visually And Soundly I can listen to this everyday of my life. It makes life seem so much less boring. favourite classical piece ever since i was little He wrote so few symphonies.. Like 9 of them.. But I listen to them a thousand times more than Mozart’s 40 symphonies. Have you read or seen beethoven’s biography?Wikipedia won’t help you I saw his biography on Discovery Channel when i was about 10 and i remember him being awe inspiring he used to lay his ear on the piano and play it as he was deaf nearly and this symphony ,all of them were made when he was deaf so deaf he couldn’t reciprocate a crowd’s applause after his performances which often angered his patrons.(kinda sponsors)This is his most painful symphony shows his constant inner turmoil. @suryakiller Intersting point, very awe inspiting to me as well. Smalin has posted a great thing here, more people are getting aquainted with and art form that hasnt had much exposure. Also the forum for some quite intruiging oppinions and debates have opened the door to a deeper understanding of what this music is all about and the nature of the mind of mankind. I vaguely sense a slight trend to more sophistication in pop music lately. Postings like this might just be a contributing factor. It’s very hard to judge between Mozart and Beethoven who is greater. I believe both men are the greatest composers ever. Beethoven’s symphonies 5, 6, 9 and Moonlight Sonata are extraordinary music that can only be composed by a divinely-inspired soul. (Mozart’s Symphony 40 is one of the best as well). Generally, in terms of symphonies, Beethoven is the greatest. In terms of piano compositions, both Beethoven and Mozart are somewhat on the same level. In all other things, Mozart is the greatest. @toni4branti Why should one be deamed greater than the other? Thats like compairing B.B. King to Hendrix, not possible. There are too many variables in that judgement. Remember that Beethovens golden era would be said by most scholars to be after the turn of the 19th century, by that time, Mozart had been gone for about a decade. The musical sceene had changed quite a bit by that point. I can appreciate your preference for Mozart, but not the cut and dry statement that Mozart is greatest. wow the way the song is layered and harmonized the graphics help heeps wow the way this is harmonized and layered, how did he compose this without recording equipment originally? @gilllie666 He wrote it down on paper. People with adequate musical training can imagine what music sounds like by looking at the notation, just as you can imagine what words sound like without having to read them aloud. I can do it (though not as well as Beethoven could). @smalin But to imagine so many different sounds/instruments all correlating, quite a task. Would production have help, that is could that have been used in a trial and error sense? btw this is coming from a guy who writes melodies on guitar records that then in playback harmonizes with different chords or riffs etc @gilllie666 Sure — if you don’t know what music sounds like until you hear it, then you certainly need external feedback. But musical imagination, the ability to hear music just by thinking about it, is related to musical comprehension and creativity. If you have to wait to hear something externally before you know if it’s musically valid, you are handicapped. Imagine if you had to say something out loud before you knew if it was true … da da da daaaaaaaaa amazing sound! (: love it! dumm dumm dumm dummmm! dum dum dum dummmmm!!!!!!!!!!(x ahha lol! There are so many versions of this. I love this version the best @smalin thanks for your help, come to think of it, sometimes in bed when the subconscious is reflecting on something one has just written but stuck on how to continue or elongate, you can find yourself imagining where to go next in that sense you have referred to. But how do you remember what notes harmonize, by using the tonic then playing corresponding mode notes one after the other? @gilllie666 There are lots of ways to think about it, and to organize your experiences. This is part of what „music theory“ is about. @2010bamabear Fur Elise? @pauleewhitingartist see the FAQ … @IckyYucky3 How about the Air („on the G string“) by Bach? Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it … to the 55 people, one question, you’re joking right??? @FRF16 I though so…. I love what you’ve done with the score. Can you do this for Four Seasons by Vivaldi as well? You’ve done Winter, so I don’t see why you shouldn’t do the other three as well. 😀 @Arvendragon It’s a lot of work to make a video, and at this point I’m more interested in variety than completeness (at least, when it comes to music that other people like more than I do … like Vivaldi). @MoonLiteWolfPro yeah, the real version @JRDNLWs69 No i mean there are sped up versions too of the symphonic version Brilliant. Thankyou so much. This is a brilliant piece of work. The visual is awesome! Thanks. Beethoven for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Now your playing with power! o.O nice i love it. Can u do tis for Moonlight Sonata all movements and for La campanella(Both piano solo and Violin). They all sound nice and i believe it adds variety to ur works as well. 🙂 first time i listened to this piece: tom and jerry 🙂 An absolute classic. Beethoven was a magnificent composer, one of the best of his era – a pure genious. Beethoven, J. S. Bach, Mendelssohn, Mozart etc. created magnificent pieces of music and will forever be appreciated. This most certainly is one of my many favorites. Brilliant!! I COULD BLATES DO THIS ON GUITAR HERO! love. @smalin Handicapped? @myprayer99 Sorry it took so long to get an asnswer to you, it was hard for me to figure out this format at first, so I can understand how it could be difficult for some people to just „look at the score“. Anyway, yes there is a first flute,second flute AND piccolo. Cool thing about ol’Loius was he was the first composer to use the piccolo in his symphonic works on a regular basis. He really was quite the innovator. (hope this helps:) @myprayer99 Most people who aren’t farmiliar with non-modern(classical) music associate it with strings, and while yes the string players have more seats in the modern day classical orchestra, there are many varieties in the realm of classical music. Piano music would be another type that is strongly associated with classical music to the non-farmiliar listener, as is opera. However the sky was the limit when they composed, almost every instrumental combination imaginable was written for. @stark1770 Sure, as a composer, handicapped. If you have to hear music (through your ears, as opposed to in your „mind’s ear“) before you can tell whether it’s any good, you can’t do as much of the work in your imagination, and this limits you. Im 14 years old (lied in the creation of my account) and i love Beethoven,he was deaf when he composed this and its a materpiece!!! piece of ressitance!!! hes deaf, right? he wasnt deaf when he composed this, he wasnt deaf until later. He was losing his hearing though as i understand, he was going deaf when he composed this. that was what my kid-school teacher told us anyway, and that his frustration went into the music here’s that trick. i went to convertyourtunes..com to convert this video to an mp3. Personally, I’d like to see him post Beethoven’s 9th on here. @1ExtraChrispy1 It’s in the works (big project). @zegh8578 Most scholors would say zegh8578 that you are spot on the money. If you want to learn more, the rest of these comments are a good way. You should be able to tell which comments have the ring of truth to them. There is lots of good info. One of the great things about this format is that it does open the door for shared oppinions. So my suggestion to you my friend is to read on!:) @smalin: Just ran across your graphic representations of classical music a few minutes ago. My question: Are you REALLY this talented!?!? These vids blow me away! Superior stuff! genius By the time he wrote his 9th symphony wasn’t he completely deaf? Hello smalin, you should edit some kind of red (Or whatever color) Line vertically so we can see exactly when each note is played. Just a suggestion. Keep up the great work. Cheers. Well done, and thanks a lot for taking the time and effort to do that! It somehow makes the music sound even better. @Straverz This feature is available on my freeware player. Applause. thanks so much for doing this. this was very helpful when i was practicing this. mira q locura… estoy escuchando esto, y en la tele mi hermano esta viendo banda XXI… solo para argentinos smalin, bravo! Wow, that is really cool. You must have put a LOT of effort into this. It’s amazing! How on earth did you make that? So beautiful and powerful!! I LOVE IT! @sanctus121 See the FAQ. wonderful piece of music! My greatest compliments! @smalin Great! The whole thing or just the first (or any other) movement? @T42nk The whole thing. I’m starting with the second movement. @smalin Wonderful! I can not wait to see it, keep up the good work. thats the best music ever @master71452 Lol nubs stating there age 58 justin bieber Greatest music ever composed. thumbs up if you agree! Fav. Part: 3:44! a la niña que yo mas amaba le gusta eso I geuss there is a reason the term „Master“ was coined…. Nothing better for weaking up people at 5 a.m. Healing powers of Beethoven :D. 5:50-7:20 😀 i just realized you don’t have a single piece of haydn uploaded yet. :,( why is that? @supiluliumas15 Just the luck of the draw; I have nothing against Haydn. i usually listen rap music…but this classic music is really nice….=) Fascinante. Quem bolou esse gráfico tem muita sensibilidade. Perfeito. This is the only vid in my youtube time I dont mind waiting to load….I just start it all over again as many times as it needed for it to load entirely and enjoy each and every time Isn’t it unbelieveable that he could not hear? When he was on stage u thought the music up in his head, truly beatiful. @BL0ODiE he was a savant im pretty sure Smalin can you please do some Stravinsky? that would be really great. @0409ds See „Could you please“ in the FAQ. Großartig!!! And to think this guy was deaf!!! @onionofdeath He went deaf eventually, but he wasn’t deaf when he wrote this. see how calm it is in the minute 3:57 – 4:12 . . . its great! 0:42 this is good man, nice job So why isn’t Beetoven himself in the credits? @christsmasher1 Because he’s in the opening title. Beethoven would fuck you’re couch strait up. this is djntrain, mad resepct yo You’ve done fascinating work on the video.Well done my friend (-_-) This is my theme song I feel in heaven at 0:54 that part oooohhh I have my skin shaking Complex thingy! this is how R2-D2 reads music Fuck Beethoven is a fucken genius! @christsmasher1 Like HELLO??? ANYONE UPSTAIRS..like in your brain? Classical music is beautiful but sometimes when i listen to it all i can picture is upper class toffee nose twats with their punchable smug faces lol I WANT DRUGS!!!!! This is what I see when I hear music, except it’s not in color. @VaniaCasacaRoja2009 ? This was amazing. This is actually the first time listening to the entire thing all the way through. The way he made the chorus sound different each time, with such simplicity as adding a few key notes is spectacular. Todays „artists“ should take a hint from this. How you made the audio?.. @MaiiaSMaiia1 play nice @o0OMarijuanaO0o implying that shit ain’t classy. I wanna see someone Guitar Hero that shit xD amazing very relaxing @smalin True, my statement was arbitrarily made because I didn’t see the opening title. I was away from my computer for the opening but I just noticed it, therefore I stand corrected. About 4000 likes to about 60 dislikes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a video with 67 likes per dislike before! But this deserves it all! (No i’m not trying to get a highest rated comment by saying „60 people are deaf“) el mejor ,magnifico esto es musica de verdad. y no la mierda de reggaeton SIMPLEMENTE DIVINO @TheAngryPie ive re-read my comment and i cant work out what this reply means lol Brilliant. I love it 🙂 Bethovev is surely one of the best Pianist ever. @onionofdeath Beethoven wasn’t deaf until around Opus 120, this is opus 67 Great peice needs to be the theme song for my show. está re buena! escuchar a este viejo compositor me revive el alma….miren que tengo 13 años pero me encantan estos temas de Beethoven…el era simplemente un genio! This is very cool! Beethoven sure wasn’t scared of putting too much instruments at the same time with the risk that it may be… well… too much. One of the gratest compositions of all time. justin bieber just got owned Very nice to see a visual representation of the music, but for me, it in some way diminishes the majesty of the piece.. Makes it look like it’s something easy to produce, when in reality the complexity & beauty of it, is so much more… you see that even back then real musicians played it loud and proud If internet would exist in Beethoven’s time…he would be more famos then ever…he is now too but he would be more famos… At 0:37 I was like Oooooh my god. O_O Music for the Soul…. Thanks for posting! wooooooow thaaaaa @SpazyFoxx lmao! I like the graph. I wish it showed the root note, then you could see the relation of the tonic to his progressions. 🙂 @smalin he was almost deaf. @xXkaddiiiXx Perhaps, but consider what that means. When you’re almost deaf, you can’t distinguish speech, and can’t hear quiet sounds or resolve complex ones, but you can still hear musical harmonies. For a composer, that’s what’s most needed; it’s easy to imagine how new melodies sound, or new rhythms, but the effect of new, previously-unheard harmonies is more unpredictable, elusive. So, I believe Beethoven’s hearing didn’t compromise his composing until he was completely deaf … if then. estoy pintandolo grande @xXkaddiiiXx actually he did lose all his hearing nice game 🙂 i came to almost lvl 5 @andreahad1 yes. but when he composed this, he was almost deaf. I vote we have more music like this. Just sayin‘. =) Although, of course, nothing will ever compare to Beethoven himself, haha. 😉 It amazes me how much music has changed over the centuries, and yet hasn’t changed. But I think what warms my heart most is the fact that people today are still enjoying it. Truly a timeless piece! I only hope Beethoven himself is proud. ya he was almost completely deaf and in order to hear the sounds, or vibrations really. He had to cut off the legs of his piano and listen to the vibrations by putting his ear to the ground. Some crazy shit, but he got it done. @smalin i heard beethoven is this alive? True? @Ello2Moto I don’t understand the question. I always loved the Timpani in this piece! 😀 Writing a piece for one instrument is difficult in itself. To interweave an entire symphony so well is just mind-boggling to me. Truly, Beethoven was a master of his craft. @Ello2Moto He has been dead for more than one hundred years. @Ello2Moto Yes, he is currently on a tour, his next stop is Valhalla. beethoven has been dead. what are you talking about? epic but his music stay alive! I just suddenly felt like RULING THE WORLD! @starrface77 Beethoven is alive in the same way Jesus is alive. That is, he’s not. @smalin all over the world there are skinhead . u can run from so called ‚ white power“ followers who got nothing els to do . I just love the French Horn in this great ! That is so awesomely done! And of course beautiful. Excellent @smalin The man maybe dead indeed, but his music lives on! Thank you for posting 🙂 wow…just wow. this as made to make you constantly adjust your volume This completely revolutionized the way I understand music. @Zigster39 This piece, or this notation, or … ? Enjoy the life while making love to a Naughty Ladies mworld5.info Ludwig von Beethoven was truly a musical genius. He completely revolutionized music. This piece alone stands out as one of the greatest musical feats of all time, not to mention his countless other masterpieces. He was the most metal dude who ever lived. I would just like to say that you have practically saved my life, I have to write a paper about music (music appreciation class) and I was totally confused – up til now! So thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what program do you use for this? i listen to this when im studying very motivating @smalin how about jazz? Big band swing is what I have in mind. 🙂 @smalin booooooo @smalin LOL. @josiah566 See the „Could you please“ item in the FAQ. i took a shit with this song in the background. it was beutiful @smalin i did shortly after posting. Thanks for the heads up, or else I would’ve done something stupid. o_O GENIUS what can you say? its Beethoven! Ting-ting-ting-tiing!!! i love 0:00 to 7:38 @rTZink124 why would he want to do that? Have you done one of these for symphony no. 6. I wish i cold watch a live concert it would be an immense pleasure to experience the music @MrDhurandhar Do they not have symphony orchestras in India? If so, it would be remarkable (nay, shameless) if they never performed this piece. Very few people in India have interest in Western classical music.Most people in India are not even aware of the Indian classical music..Bloywood music is popular and we have many languages and dialects in india.Live concert of western classical music is confined to niche class and never advertised.I listen to classical music alone in my bedroom and try to enjoy it closing my eyes.There is no audience except myself This is friggin awesome This made my nipples hard. honestly, beethoven is the fucking man. 300 years ago he made music that is so high above the level intellectually that most people make nowadays. It’s like (Beethoven) „Oh, I wish I could live 300 years from now to hear music that will blow my mind“ (Me, after taking a time machine) „Nope, its sucks. The music your hearing now is better than any music after it“ (Beethoven) „Oh shit! I’m glad I live now so I won’t be alive to see humanity slowly destroy itself“ 3:43 – 4:24 just blows my mind. Reminds me of Super Mario World for some reason…;) Meu nome é Enéas! @smalin The software that shows each instrument and its queue to hit a note. this is great stuff Thanks I haven’t heard that piece in such clearity in a long time. I love the work you have done never sell youself short of such greatness. Yea your not the composer but you were able to put a composors work together and post it without all the errors in sound I have heard in the past. So take a bow and acept the bouquet of roses… BROVO!!! @ShoopaDaWoopa1 Beethoven was famous for his dynamics . His piano work shows this well . @mcvaney71 rumor has it he was so loud with his piano he was evicted many times from flats all across Germany .. His Piano was not like the old ones lots of others used back then . His was Very close to a modern Piano . Much more louder … \m/ the dum dum dum dummmmm sounds like starwars @meunit1 actually, star wars sounds like the dum dum dum dummmmm this and vivaldi’s four season would be a reason to restart playing the piano and start playing the violin (: 59 people got scared, and pissed their pants at the very beginning and hit the dislike button @anadus7 lol thats exactly what i said but in reverse @meunit1 haha exactly. I’m merely pointing out that it is more likely that star wars was inspired by beethoven rather than the reverse. @anadus7 o yer of course Musica perfeita… music by mathematics….it’s a strong video!! @smalin If I could, I would definitely thumbs up your response. This music is not perfect. And this is why it’s brilliant… Would this be considered a fugue? It seems like the different „voices“ are imitative contrapuntal or practice that, but not sure how disparate the voices can become before the composition is not considered a fugue… @bradscans All fugues have imitation, but not all things with imitation are fugues. See the Wikipedia article on fugue, counterpoint, etc. @smalin thanks @bradscans I agree – check the wikipedia article. Basically there a very clear, and strict structural requirements for a fugue – a „subject“ – one melodic idea sounds first – before another voice produces an „answer“ – which is normally exactly the same as the subject but a new key (transposed normally to the dominant or subdominant). While the answer plays, the original voice accompanies with a „countersubject“. The process continues with new entries of the subject NB: No.5 is not contrapuntal I was board once in class… It was a comp sci class and we were in a computer lab. So.. I made a program that used the speaker to do the first few notes of this piece. Every once in a while.. If I felt that parts of the instructors lecture was missing dramatic over tones, I’d run the program. I was board once in class… It was a comp sci class and we were in a computer lab. So..

WTF? If only I could see that proud moment as Beethoven would’ve conducted this piece, and feel every atom in each cell of my proud German blood vibrate in response to the assault of such a sound. The experience could only be God-like, something beyond which we will never go, for this is the closest thing to perfection a man has ever created. It shall never be equalled, never debased and never forgotten. This music and the proud soul who created it are immortal kin within the annals of time. This is great,strong,changing and epic… great song… and PRETTY COLORS i wish they had those at every orchestra my baby son and i watch this video every saturday. thanks for posting 6:10 -> End 😐 @Amityrockstarx I just pissed because I am German too. I made up my own religion that Beethoven is god in heaven! @Amityrockstarx I just Jizzed my pants because I am German too. Tout simplement le plus grand morceau de musique classique de tous le temps. Le génie de Beethoven est encore plus visible avec cette barre graphique. Merci pour cette vidéo. Do you by any chance have the 1812 Overture posted? There should be a star rated thing in youtube. looking to this video gives me the feeling like some firework is going together with al the imagination this incredibly inhuman over talented Beethoven who was creating this song in his mind. It is a brain killer. I’ve got nothing than admiration for this peace of work. How…the fuck…Do you write such a thing o.O oh,how beautifull this is beautiful..my favorite very neat DUN DUN DUN DUUUUNNNNN~ I love beethoven I used to love watching the piano roll flow over the vacuum bar on a player piano. This is even better. Have you ever seen a reproducing piano roll? It was a system that playback the way the player cut the roll…the music would get louder, slower, however the person played it. It was another row of holes, and you could anticipate the changes watching them come off the roll and then go over the bar. Anyway, this is great stuff. Congratulations. @bradscans .. You’re thinking about it too much, Brad….LOL it reminds me tetris. x) @bradscans No. A fugue has a very specific form. For instance, a fugue must make the statement in the tonic and then immediately after, in the dominant key at the beginning of the piece. This piece does have many things that make fugues sound like fugues, such as imitation and contrapuntal movement, however, fugues are as much about form as style cool What a music Genious Eminem > Beethoven. a real masterpiece, like it @MrCrowRS wrong. Para 80 % dos brasileiros é Beethoven e lula, só, mais ninguém! @MrCrowRS lol wft @MrCrowRS Sorry, wrong video. This ins’t for idiots @MrCrowRS shut up troll music taste changes person to person but how can u not like this music ! by the way did u make all those rythm thing 0_0(talented) Humans dont have 15-20 fingers!!!!!! @Jennamomo well, i have 20 fingers. do you have some problem on your feet? 😛 too bad i cant play piano with my toes though :/ oh, and beautiful song! great work Your video is great. Thank you for your sharing. Oh, I hear this is a Carlos Kleiber’s 1975, is it? One of the best performances ever, you can hear the strings fighting for life.. 🙂 This is the Carlos Kleiber’s 1975 perfrormance, is it? Oneof the best ever, you can hear the strings firghting for life.. 🙂 Very clever. Good video. In your sofware, do each of the instruments have their own color when you put them on the bar score? Or does the software put the colors in itself randomly (I know that it isn’t completely random, each section has its own shade of a certain color)? @mranderson762 I pick the colors. don’t like classic music but this is just a piece of heaven @thijsisf1fan give classic songs a chance ! There is many heavenly songs like that to find in the classic genre! Keep searching ! 😛 @CossacksChampion i do listen a lot of epic songs, specially from Immediate Music! The idea is remarcable. Congratulation @thijsisf1fan So that I.Ok,I also don’t like classical music like Mozart,bach or Hayden.But Bethovens 5th Symphony is masterpiece (actually almosty every his song is nasterpiece). And some Chopin is also really good.;) this is awesome! ha hm i really don’t know why it’s so hard to find some cool guys on you tube! @xsilentandinvisible me too is this song made by a software or is it played by a real orchestra? it sounds a little bit too artificial @benni604613 Yeah, I actually think you’re showing a sort of bias here. This is clearly a real recording. The fact that it’s so precise is just the nature of classical music. Mathematically perfect. this is my ringtone when work calls me… the musicers need not do be sad about bad critics, listen tothe bad stacatto from 5:58 min on, or the apocalyptik pattern from 6:04 to 6:07 !!! Theres one too much, must be an echo, but sounds like shit! Anyone else hear four notes in the beginning instead of three? Here are some musical facts: Beethoven wrote this during his „heroic“ period, this is a Romantic style piece, not Classical, becuase it was written in the Romantic era and it is said the four note theme represents fate knocking. This movement is a sonata, becuase the theme is presented, it repeats, it is modified then partially returns and ends. And the four note theme is a unified theme for it is heard in the other movements also. Three out of five; not bad. Beethoven is usually considered to have been a composer who spanned the Classical and Romantic periods, and this piece was written at the end of what most people call the Classical period (and before what most people call the Romantic period). The „fate“ attribution comes from Schindler, who is believed to have forged entries in Beethoven’s conversation books. So I would call these two not „facts“ but „matters of opinion“ (opinions that I do not share). @smalin Now we all know you like bright colors 😉 Considering Beethoven could only (barely) hear the bassline with his hearing equipment set, it is to be considered a miracle and a sign of his true passion being able to write such an emotional (romantic) piece. The more i look at those graphics, the more impressed I am by the complexity of this work (and lots of others). This is absolutely fantastic!!! I could watch these all day. 🙂 @smalin the ending is epic @Nintonic33 COOL STORY BRAH who ever disliked this needs to be slapped all 61 whoua @Nintonic33 It’s funny that people like you normally spend their entire life wondering why people hate them. Looks really complex whith this graphics effect. And this is ! Nice vid. the funny thing about Beethoven’s songs, is that they suddenly go loud and scary like to nice, calm, and silent. XD i still like his song though @bradscans There’s not really much counterpoint – hardly any. Also, you usually wouldn’t find any repeats in a fugue – all the repetition is internal, consisting of repetitions of the theme. Lastly, a fugue introduces each voice one by one with the subject, and they modulate to a different key with each entry. @bradscans This is Sonata form. First theme, transition to second theme in the dominant key, etc…This follows the form very closely. Yes there are imitative parts, but a fugue is much more structured, and the subject would be much longer and presented totally in one voice before it was repeated in another. And Beethoven generally didn’t write fugues. That was so passe in his time 🙂 dude the whole thing looks really messy but i still likde it And it’s not necessarily Romantic if it was written in the Romatic period. That’s like saying Brahms‘ „Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel“ is Romantic music! @F1R1NMAHLAZAH Actually, the theme of Brahms‘ variations is Baroque, but the variations themselves are Romantic. i don’t think people understand that you can’t „dislike“ the foundation of music, its the the reason you can „like“ the music you listen to today… overwhelming! great! Darn you people who actually listen to things you comment about! :3 @Nintonic33 That is not musical facts, that’s nonsense. Beethoven’s romantic period is considered to have started around 1820. Therefore the only symphony to be romantic is the 9th. And it is indeed a milestone since it broke with the dogma that symphonies have to consist of four short movements and to be performed by an orchestra only. Many later composers from Mendelssohn to Mahler used the 9th symphony as a template for their own ones. so good i really would like to play this good one day maybe i would love to see Justin Bieber try to write something as beatyfull as this! @SmashingPumpkins888 shut the fuck up who gives a fuck about justin bieber ur stupid to just think of justin bieber on this video dude. im even ashamed i just said his name. @SlayAndPlay relax! i was just joking! This song will forever remind me of my evil biology teacher. my favourate symphony… this is amaizing i dk how you did it but theses are great and now i can see what every instrment is playing its great This is a brilliant symphony. I love Beethoven. And Mozart as well. They were very gifted. But I do prefer Metallica. Very good! This is marvelous. @elmofinatic 😀 lmao! @Nintonic33 Is the 4 note thing you call a theme a theme, because I thought it was a motif? Anyone else think about Judge Judy when you hear the beginning of this piece, or is it just me? This piece is the best example for true, pure inspiration. stunning. who else in here is a metalhead and is enjoying this from the bottom of his heart? ;D @lawlolawlOMG Some say motif, some say theme, some say both. Ok honestly, the reason I liked WATCHING this was because I thought of guitar hero and how ridiculously hard this would be if it were on there lol. And who else got that little dizzy feeling after you finished watching this…like the screen was still moving lol. Anyways, I love this song now and its going in my…… Favorites @Tfile12 Orchestra Hero. Sounds like a new Video-Game franchise! I WA NA CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMM …. WHEN I HEAR THHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSS (try saying it with the same beat 😛 ) This visual is unbelievable, does anyone know anything about it~ meu nome é enéas.. How was it Beethoven always found the right superchord to end on? @bobbertq He started with the ending and worked his way backward. Not. @jackfenderrox computer generated crap. the music’s no good. @Musicownz1997 i’m pretty sure this is just a graph.. it sounds nothing like the digital shit people are putting up now a days. Tô com fome, mande dinheiro para mim! Soooo perfect….. DA DA DA DUM……….. This is freekin awesome! music in perfection Beethoven is a genius. No one else made music like him. I am more a metal/hard rock fan, but this is my favourite after metallica. And guys who clicked dislike button. You just disliked music made by a man who was gifted by God, and is sharing it with us. Thanks, all Beethoven fans. These graphs really help the listener who is already somewhat familiar with the pieces. Your ear tends to gravitate to certain aspects that stand out to you. When you „watch“ the music you start to notice the beautiful interplay of ALL the parts! Brilliant! nom nom nom noooooom 🙂 The first Rockstar in History! What would make these diagrams more accurate s to show the louder sections as being LARGER— Just sayin. so fucking epic. brought a tear to my eye… :‘) XD Omg! I tried to play this song on the violin it didnt work out haha laughing at my self >.< you should make this for video game soundtrack too! Especially Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger 😀 We are studying this piece along with the other movements in music history. Thank you for posting this on youtube. 🙂 this fucking sucks how the fuck does this have over a million views…. bottom line beethoven is waaay overrated this sounds so complicated… but the music is so epic!! They Fuckin‘ Ripped through that one. Did they have EMT’s on hand to supply everyone with oxygen immediately after the mics were shut off? Wow. This… is… cool… @F1R1NMAHLAZAH I don’t think this is Romantic Period, it’s after Baroque, but not Romantic. @atroxanimi77 I think it’s debatable 😀 With Beethoven, it really doesn’t even have to end on a ONE chord, it’ll sound amazing whatever it would be. chocola if you pase this video and look at the notes go baclk wards beautyvol !!! @smalin could u explain to me what a „superchord“ is? im guessing a huge chord thats in more than 2 octaves or something? sorry im still new to all these musical terms @bobbertq could ya help me out with the term „superchord“? @Orphic it is a chord which is big and it sounds super! Bonus points if you can play it in 4 dimensions. this is awesome. how did you do it? @oliviajohnson12529 see the FAQ @smalin hey you’re a musical genius, would it sound good if you replaced the three notes that make up a standard chord with the chords of the same name? Beethoven Is Just A Legend. I Love This Piece Of Music. Its Amazing. Will the software for the bars hurt my computer, because i have downloaded somethings and it hurt my computer really badly. and when he wrote this..he was completely…Deaf… @raginroadrunner No, actually, he could still hear (somewhat) when he wrote this. This is very simplistic compared to Bach. So this is what really went on inside Beethoven’s head… @oliviajohnson12529 It will not hurt your computer. Thank you for this excellent application and example. The recording is of a real orchestra performing. The visual rendering has no regard to dynamic contour but is really fascinating as time-based occurrences. @WizardKing78 This cannot be compared to Bach. It is like comparing a cathedral with a coral reef. @bobbertq A chord is any 3 or more notes played simultaneously. You could even go further and claim the same in the spectral realm of each timbre. Also, consider micro-tones. „Standard chord“ is defined by idiom. On each pitch you can create ANY chord. And each note can be any pitch. And so the result of your proposed scenario can be anything. If you want a specific result, you need to control the variables in your scenario. I hope this helps. I find it a little bit too fast. To me, a lot of emotion & power are lost. Funny how slightly higher/lower BPM can change a piece. In both ways. Lame ending. Why can’t it end like 1:29? @ChaozMKW This was composed for a general audience; his chamber music is less effect-oriented, and tighter. I recommend that you do Tchaikovsky Symphony No.4 Mvt.4 ^_^ @oliviajohnson12529 give it some medicine? Ah, I thought this was by Mozart. Couldn’t find this. :d @ChaozMKW @smalin The 7th symphony, my personal favorite, was written when he was deaf, I believe @hylianzeldamaster My understanding is that he wasn’t totally deaf until 1815; the seventh symphony was written in 1811. I swear 0:08 plays in my head when my ex walks by. hope i can play all of those in just one hand…. @smalin Yes I’m pretty sure You’re correct. He composed some of his greatest works as his deafness began causing him his worst internal agony. This is supposedly best exemplified in his Symphony No. 3 „Eroica“ – the first of his „Heroic“ works. It is outstanding. I love to see animation for Mars, The Bringer of War from Gustav Holst’s „The Planets.“ That’s great, thank you. I hope you can add for us Beethoven’s piano sonata called „Apassionata“/ 3rd movement (Op 57), when you can. This should look fabulous! I think that bethoven’s 5th symphony was his best. lindo… @smalin This is chamber music? I don’t think works for full orchestra fall under that category of „chamber“ music, especially not a symphony. And I don’t think Beethoven wrote this for a „general“ audience; I can’t say for certain, but I can take an educated guess and say that at the time this was premiered it was probably met with confusion and dissatisfaction. @MariusChamberlin You misunderstood me; I was saying this *isn’t* like his chamber music. His orchestral music in general, and this movement especially, is much more repetitive and effect-oriented than his average piece of chamber music. The first performance of the fifth symphony was under-rehearsed and the audience was exhausted, so it wasn’t very well-received, but its second performance was very well received and the piece quickly became a „standard“ (unlike, say, the grosse fuge). @smalin Okay. Thanks for clarifying. Hahah and the Grosse Fuge. It took ME a while before I began to to like it. I can’t imagine what the audience back THEN must have thought. i came here kus of mysteryguitarman. Thumbs up if u came here too All i can think of when i listen to classical music such as this is bugs bunny. All i can think of when i listen to classical music such as this is bugs bunny. @smalin how does your original reply relate at all to chaozMKW’s point? total non-sequiter @smalin how does your original reply relate at all to chaozMKW’s point? total non-sequiter @ChaozMKW „Why can’t it end like 1:29?“ Its because Beethoven doesn’t compose for people with short attention spans like you. Cheers 😀 @TVAboy1 Dude, Im 12 and I love classical and baroque music. Of course I listened to the whole thing at least 10 times. Im saying, can’t you change the ENDING of this to be like 1:29. @ChaozMKW The symphonies are less subtle than some other music, with bigger gestures. If the piece ended with something like the cadence at 1:29, the audience would have had wondered „is it over?“ (since it did that at 1:29, and it wasn’t over then). He wanted to do something more obviously final. sounds like and looks like the synchronicity of depths and heights at every level This must have taken a long to make,so much detail,so much fenes. Well done! beethoven is a genious!! Best Part 0:00-7:38! Thumbs up if you think like that! @ChaozMKW If you listened to it at least 10 times, you would have noticed that it’s not the same thing played over and over again from 0:00 to 1:29. You may love classical and baroque music, but you certainly don’t appreciate it. @ChaozMKW If you listened to it at least 10 times, you would have noticed that it’s not the same thing played over and over again from 0:00 to 1:29. You may love classical and baroque music, but you certainly don’t appreciate it. This is divine! I just had a urge to hear this song today. This is divine! I just had a urge to hear this song today. Holy crap! This is like the inside of my brain! Visualizing intervals is something I do nonstop. i just got mindfucked! ХОРОШЕЕ ВПОЛНЕ ИСПОЛНЕНИЕ I love this video for this song! It really shows the dynamics that is portrayed in this piece. This has always been one of my favorites from Beethoven, next to Moonlight Sonata. watch this ! youtube.com/watch?v=VLmg-4GMpb4&feature=player_embedded this should be in guitar hero 😛 FANTASTICO Thanks for the lyrics! 😀 Listening, and watching this just makes you realise what a genius Beethoven was. @Tattu001 yeah but even one easy this would one hell of a challenge to play on a guitar finally i found this song! X3 it’s lovely, and those lyrics are awesome~ Hey how come I never see you doing any mahler? I know, read the FAQ, read the FAQ… @whythewar1 read the FAQ … @nigelo92 and some people say he was deaf @Thecrazymmallow He was Deaf! He could not hear a single note. In order to write his music, he sawed the legs off of his piano and banged on the keys to feel the fibrations through the floor. wow again I LOVE IT!! @hotgothtink4u He wasn’t totally deaf though? Started losing his hearing in his 20’s? @nigelo92 yeh beethoven was deaf. This is like Rock Band It was so amazing how he was deaf and he still made such beautiful music. It just comes to show that all the fags that say deaf ppl r good for nothing that they can make something of themselves. and to get a life before they talk anymore crap about deaf ppl or anybody for that matter. Beethoven was amazing at what he did and idk how he did it wen he was deaf to make such wonderful music. I love this guy he was so amazing and freakin wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Omg @hotgothtink4u He could hear the music in his head dude. Beethoven often lay his head on the piano to feel the vibrations while playing it. I guess it was pure hell for him to be such a genius in music while suffering from his advancing deafness. Of course he knew how the music sounds but he wasn’t able to listen with his own ears at the end. Maybe it’s even his deafness which pushed him to all his great achievements, we’ll never know … Anyway! He’s no1 in my personal top 5 greatest Germans. Where are the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th movements? The first is not nearly a good representation of this awesome symphony @Idrogo100 He was an outlier This video is how music should be written – semi cleff my ass this is so cool im already a big fan. could you PLEASE do dies iræ by verdi? thats so epic and fantastic. i wish you consider doing it.. thanks @salamanje See „Could you please…“ in the FAQ. wow this is amazing! this is how I see music in my head, like colored blocks! I almost fell out of my seat when I saw this! @Malikon1 I can’t be held responsible for injuries sustained as a result of watching my videos. 😉 @smalin I put it on my facebook. It’s really neat, and creepy at the same time. If you made this thanks for taking the time to do it. Fate’s staring me in the face again. Idk, I think the horn at 51 ruined the intensity for me To think that this was considered second-rate to mozart in its time… sigh. Will people never understand true brilliance…? not saying beethoven is bad, but can you do an indiana jones theme song one? i think that would be intresting Do you do other types of animation? such as cartoons, special effects, games etc… Beethoven was indeed a friggin genius… I haven’t realized how complex classical music was until I saw this -_- I’ll make sure to listen to this stuff more xD @blizzardballz I wrote a very simple game once … about 30 years ago … but other than that, it’s all been about music … see the history section of my web site for more background … dude this sounds really good i never realized that he made this… This is Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic, not som „Royalty free Symphony“. Beethoven would love this kind of technology! 66 died watching the ring @smalin Thank You for all the hard work and high quality provided! Keep it up! i wonder if anyone on earth can play this solo on a piano @undertakersuckslikeh Sure; there have been many piano arrangements, and they aren’t too hard (that is, compared to the hardest things written for piano). AS a fellow music apprechiater i just love how its all shiney and crap isnt it a pain in the ass to rebuild this and do you produce your own music ? ah my eyes i love this though This is like ULTIMATE GUITAR HERO. music like this will live for ever.for those that like to listen to this music but in the 70s walter murphy turn it up a notch but for me i like both music like this will live for ever.for those that like to listen to this music but in the 70s Walter Murphy turn it up a notch but for me i like both and it’s get to have sex while listening to Check out my compositions! Do you know which colours are which instruments? As a trombone player, I’m thinking the olive green is trombone (or possibly french horn) @neildorgan See the chart (link in the description). @SirFinnThe8th You found this boring? @SirFinnThe8th BORING? I loved it. @SirFinnThe8th You know, SirFinnThe8th, saying „I think Beethoven’s Fifth is boring“ is more or less equivalent to saying „I’m totally brain-dead.“ Just so you know. @smalin I’m imagining his answer right now: I’m brain-dead? Totally brain-dead? Cool! anyways, amazing piece of music. haha i i love this So I’m listening to this for my class and I like it soo much that I’ve made a ring-tone out of it but I still need to know why it’s considered a romanticist work of art, can anyone help? @SirFinnThe8th You need more imagination. Take this song and imagine a scene with this song as the theme song, it doesn’t become boring after that. What Mickey Mouse Fantasia does pretty similar to what I’m asking. If you can’t, then you Sir, are indeed brain dead. @smalin Can you get a piano version of this then? I’m interested what it would sound like on one or several. @SirFinnThe8th ….wow…. just wow…you prefer bieber perhaps? This is some of the best music ever composed. It’s REAL. @SirFinnThe8th Prepare youreself for the spooky dick and prepare to get raped with it during 4 centuries of penetration of the homosexual ghost.You will find it soo much fun. @veryCHEWEY I think there are piano versions posted on YouTube. Liszt (among others) arranged it for piano. @HAMZA7799 maybe its just because of the time this piece was written. This song is so stupid. It don’t even have no words in it. It u wanna hear real music turn on the radio and listen to sum Hannah Montana or Justin Bieber. Classical music is boooring and dead. It’s my all-time-favorit! @MrDestroyer3000 Meh I guess it doesn’t really matter, what matters is that it’s good enough for me to listen to when I’m takin a shit @undertakersuckslikeh find listz’s arrangement. and well, it isn’t one of the easiest things ever. the hardest thing is the distance between the notes(which is generaly a lot) @neildorgan from what i can tell as a tuba player myself the dark moron is Tuba/baratone/chelo @texasvamp8 It can be a pain, but it’s worth it. to think that a piece composed in the 1800s could actually still touch and entertain use so damn well Beethoven is amazing thumbs up if u agree. 68 people are freaking stupid!!! pray to jesus christ seems like it , i play the violin in the orchestra , iv always thought the trombone was preety cool ! i love this piece of music ! one of bethovensbest ! i heard bethoven was angry at himself at the end of his life so he started to write angry music…but his music was always amazing ! awesome!:) Terrible! Nice song! 😀 im playing this song for my orchestra class!! 😀 @neildorgan its not french horn its just horn @XXVampireLordXX SERIOUSLEY =O wat grade u in? My ears are not worthy @Agomongo1235 The thing composers call „horn“ is a French horn. This video is incredible! I can’t quite believe I’ve spent nearly 8 minutes of my life watching pixels scroll by and I’m not even pissed! Damn i fell in love with this 🙂 It would be cool if volume could be integrated into the program to demonstrate the dynamic contrast of louds and softs in this song. man why didnt i listen to this when i had to study for exams in my previous years? It is a beautiful song. When the video is over stare at something and it“ll bend to the right. 6:22 – 6:50 the most EPIC part 😀 i love beethoven symphonys more then motzart’s i dont know why… @MaTaNhy Beethoven is of stronger Character (In Music) than Mozart. Mozart is softer not as active. They are two diffrent styles. FRUITY LOOPS BIZNITCH!!! ^_^ @Bl00DN00B i dont care , i still love beethoven more. if i were trippin right now this would be even more awesome 😀 the snozzberries taste like snozzberries 😛 I got one word, Genius @mimozaification Do you know why? It’s a subconscious trick Beethoven plays…. the entire time, that one melodic fragment goes up but never ALL the way up – it always falls short… then, right where you pointed out, he extends it and brings it up the entire octave. He knew he was going to do that from the moment he started writing lol I like these kind of classics.It’s just so extordinary ,different,brilliant and not like those other classic ball room musics. clearly 100% genius, just look on how many „layers“ was this man thinking, and he was also pretty much deaf, big man big character. @chitzacu I thought he didn’t go deaf till befor the 9th Symphony? ya he was a genius but hes just going up and down the piano keys but he brings it to a new level tho Man, that’s so 8bit. Awesome. @sanosukke 8-bit … that’s me. i use this song when im deep in thought i even take the „thinkers“ pose lol @jeffamarie how cool. I really didn’t know that. now I like Beethoven even more 😀 Da Da Da DAAAAAAAAAAAAAA … da da da DAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! 🙂 4:18 sounds like Star Wars 😛 @Nickeao I was just thinking that. Sounds exactly like „duel of the fates.“ i like this song The master would have liked this video ! my favorite part is from 5:53 to the end beautiful! This Is Amazing! There is a „like“ and a „dislike“ button, but where’s the button for a standing ovation ? Most difficult guitar hero song ever? „69“ people like „this“ more than they like Beethoven. Do you get it? i just wanted to say thank you. thank you for taking the time to produce this. @batmanrules1014 You’re welcome. Thank you for this work. It helps a lot to understand the structure of the composition. Damn try looking at this when your high. Bad ass but it is very good work @masterofmuppets101 lol there would have to be like 10 buttons and 6 being hit at the same time… hell yes graphical score animations rock so hard! have you ever try some jazz tune-to-graphic before? it’s interesting. I would like to add my thanks for your videos and hard work, and sharing them. I play around w/ a little Casio kybd with Bach’s Toccatta (to scare the trick-or-treaters, of course) and you’ve actually made it easier to improve a bit. I wonder what Beethoven would say, if he could have seen this. so beautiful/relaxing. as many others said thank you for taking the time to do this for our viewing pleasure 🙂 so glad that classical music is still appreciated. just makes me want to be a better person haha thank you! Great idea for a video. Would work brilliantly in showing students use of repetition in pieces. This here song got me a speeding ticket once. Can’t help but drive but drive fast when I hear it. I still love it though!! i love it, favorite symphony music of all time!! I always thought that the genius of this music is evident in 4:36 God take Justin Beiber and give us back Ludwig Van Beethoven. AMAZING was watching screnn it paused to buffer my eyes were like woahhhh i love how everyone commenting on this is so nice every other kind of music people just talk crap @americans4integrity The Beethoven piece most likely to get me a speeding ticket is the third movement of the moonlight sonata. 🙂 @jameshamza Without clicking I’ll bet you’re referring to the lone oboe. I would also bet that the great power that can come of an isolated oboe or recorder shrewdly employed is something Beethoven learned from the baroque masters, as in the beginning of the second movement of Bach’s first Brandenburg concerto. Watching those little bars move across the screen is almost hypnotic. 4:17 – 4:25 most epic moment in music DU-DU-DU-DUUUUUUUUUUUN awesome @ smalin Love it. Thanks for loosing the rental fee, sorry it didnt work how you wanted. @MadForests Totally agree. 😛 0:08 best riff ever I LOVIE THIS SO MUCH!!! XD @Agomongo1235 I’m a senior in high school its funny the way god works……….he makes one of the greatest composers ever…DEAF……..genius…pure genius DU-DU-DU-DUUUUUUUUUUUN This is very 8bit. I cannot BELIEVE that 71 people dislike this!!!!!! @Theappletree9 71? I find it hard to believe even one person dislikes this. @lrod199711 that`s what i am asking myself. how can someone that is deaf to compose such masterpieces. 6:00 ist schon geil des Horn !!! What did you do to make this video? AKA; what program (if any) did you use to make this video? @jmyrtle13 I used software that I wrote (and which is not available to the public). That’s Cool. Thank you for responding to my comment; I have recently subscribed to your channel. You are a great „friend“. -jmyrtle13 Great idea, great execution. What an interesting modern age we do live in. 🙂 very nice mix modern with classic =P wow, with these programsitives such acool look at music 3:56 is like heaven and hell and then they crash. Just mind blowing @MvP1707 Beethoven wasn’t born deaf. He only started losing his hearing just before the Fifth, and wasn’t actually deaf until the Ninth. Hmmm…why I think a week earlier, this video was part of YouTube rentals…. 71 justin beiber fans saw this… didnt it take a long time to make this with all the ’notes‘ @NorMarkus Yes, it took a while. The first eight notes of Beethoven’s Fifth are still some of the most powerful ever written. Then again, ANYTHING would sound powerful with instrumentation like that! The is the The Fibonacci Sequence ( A mathematical pattern that is found everywhere, the length of your knuckles, how a rabbit grown, how the branches on a tree grown, the rings around a pincone evrything!, the ancient piramids, the parthanon, and it wasn’t discovered until years after those were made., the sequence gows, 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34………. Beethoven decided to put it in as music and it was musicaly perfect. Thanks for posting. Never tire of seeing these. Every school child should be shown this at some stage. This video has a way of touching the music like I’ve never seen. For the time it took you to make this, it was worth every minute, Thank you for recreating such a beautiful masterpiece. wow ur vid looks like it took forever @smalin great job you did with the 5th, i saw more of these graphics. My questin is : does every color of the bars reprecent a different instrument? Sometimes i get a bit lost in thoese graphics. @pils64 Each color is an instrumental part in the score. Some of these are separate instruments, and some are groups of instruments (e.g. the first violins). @smalin; Bad-ass… one of my favorite pieces of music Would it be possible for you to do something by Mahler? Like a movement from one of his symphonies. @Darkserpentes Possible, but not likely, since I don’t like Mahler much. @smalin Would you consider making these videos to modern music such as Arcade Fire or the Beatles? PS. Brilliant work! Keep it up! @SuperSovietBear Because of copyright considerations, I only do work by contemporary artists when they ask me to (and sometimes not even then). You should do a Stravinsky video!! haha 😀 arrow button advertising coincides with the center and present situation of the song, so unwittingly I suppose, you got a very funny guide… ^_^ It’s kind of hypnotic, and a huge and great job… EPIC dominoes Favorite classical piece hands-down. Beethoven is a beast. This is the best Atari game ever. This is an excellent teaching tool. I’m using it for my composition students This is an excellent teaching tool. I’m using it for my composition students Thanks for sharing PLEASE make moonlight sonata 3rd movement. PLEASE Think you could do some by Liszt? funny what people think but its not as complex as it looks. most of the bars are just the same notes but different octaves. love your videos! @jokeistman That’s only true for the bottom two. @lavamaster530 There’s one Liszt piece here, and one on my DVD (hint, hint). This is really cool! How do you do this? @jimmysluv321 With software. THIS IS FREAKING AWESOME! @TheSandra1437 Sure — it’s Beethoven. i saw at your website that you didn’t like tchaikovsky. Why don’t you like his music? he has composed some very beautiful music @vanburikwouter Good idea. I would love to see the 1812 Overture this way. @vanburikwouter There’s no accounting for taste. This is so cool! I love Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. thnx 4 making a vid for this piece. beethoven’s fifth is one of my favorite pieces of music. Free-Ipad.tv The whole piece is awesome, but the finale is epic! Banananaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Banananaaaaaaaaaaaa!! is there any way I can download software to make MIDI files form other music files I already have? @Anathiron There’s some software that does that, but it doesn’t work very well. this was purely amazing. I am 18 and i have been recently looking at this type of music and i really enjoy this ALOT! its funny because i listen to bands like avenged seven fold and metallica and slipknot haha and lets not forget tupac, but this is amazing i love this. Thank you for uploading these! @smalin oh, but I’m satisfied with any working software, good or not 😛 I’m trying to write music down by listening to it, and these animations are very helpfull but I don’t have any MIDI files of the songs I’m trying to write down xD @Anathiron Then Google for „audio to MIDI.“ Good luck. @smalin thanks ^^ you people are gay!!!! why would you listin to this crap Am I the only one who, after staring at the animation for the entirety of the video, still sees everything on the screen shifting in one direction? lol. Wonderful thing about Beethoven’s later symphonies is that they’re so difficult to analyze as far as musical form because of the apparent extensions of every single semi-phrase and phrase in the entire piece. Tchaikovsky has some very clear textbook examples of non-extended period-form music, but then again, they’re completely different composers =) @garland81 banana? @royalclutchz Why would you bother clicking on this video? so i can find losers like you @royalclutchz lemme guess. You’re braindead right? Yeah thought so. Beethoven wrote this when he was completely deaf now imagine what he could have written if he were alive today with guitars and recording equipment @glencoe428 No, actually, Beethoven could still hear somewhat when he wrote this. If he lived today, he would have spent more time playing with equipment (and playing video games) and less time becoming a skilled musician, so he probably would have written stuff that wasn’t as good. @royalclutchz how are you gay for enjoying music that has been celebrated for centuries? Especially songs as famous as this symphony. You obviously wanted to hear it if you chose to watch it quitley briljant (Y) Love the sudden change in tempo and feeling at 5:55, amazing…. @smalin actually, my friend, if he lived today, he’d commit suicide when he sees what kind of music people are into.. this is sad 🙁 LOL!Beethoven playing video games?I wonder how he plays GTA4?Going to the pub and asking for classical music! NICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE BEETHOVEN ROCKS! @glencoe428 He would sound like every other person out there, money owns music now, not back then. Music was about music, so i’m happy that he did what he did back them. ta at ta taaaaaaaaaaaaa @glencoe428 9th was when he was completely deaf… a genious, simply a genious listen tanguera by mores this kind of beats guitar hero doesn’t it? 😀 which fruit is Bethoveen’s favorite?? BA NA NA NAAAAAAAA! LOL If i was livin in this time i would have invented headbangin. \m/. que bonita musica no como la de hoy.. @FranciscaB15 Genius. But yes, he was 🙂 71 herps disliked derpa derp derrrr justin bieber hurrr 71 people still listen to todays music 😛 @royalclutchz Well, if we are gay, then so is quite a bit of the human population. A lot of people listen to this amazing music. You know, „You’re gay!!“ is not a very good insult… Try thinking up something more intelligent next time, if you are capable. Very irritating: it’s a good concept for a visual, graphic depiction but the instrument’s position on the graph AND COLOR change. Note values and rhythm aren’t really indicated, there can be no respresentation in this scheme for tones not in the diatonic scale, so you cannot tell where B’ven modulates away from Cminor into G. Far better are the graph representations that simply use Standard musical notation and move along; this is more confusing than helpful (cf anathiron) esp trying to LEARN it @ihfc101 thank you for making it plain. Hopefully, the phrase will cease to exist. (T_T) @smalin Now I think you underestimate maestro Beethoven: we have many examples of people today who spend almost every minute they possibly can on creating fantastic art, composers, painters, writers etc. Beethoven was such a devoted and true artist I don’t think he would have (or could) distract himself from composing even if he lived in today’s society (allthough it probably inhibits the creativity of many mediocrities the true artists remain, cause they can do nothing but create). @glencoe428 He was not completely deaf when writing the 5th. His hearing was certainly poor at the time, but he could still hear. Around 1814, he finally had to give up performing due to hearing loss. This was written a few years before that. And Beethoven was certainly familiar with guitars, though he never wrote anything for the instrument. Someone once described this piece to me as Beethoven’s middle finger to the world. It is very amusing to me to imagine this as his mood while listening. @smalin who knows, but still…. @smalin TRUE why would people look this up to dislike it u guys are fucking idiot hater bitches that cant apreciate real music why would people look this up to dislike it u guys are fucking idiot hater bitches that cant appreciate real music Phantastisch!!! Das ist sehr Schön! imagine the feeling of being at the concert when beethoven premiered this work of art @ihfc101 Better to just ignore them really, you’ll just get them to spout more inane profanities. @smalin well this is something we will never know 🙂 Excellent rendition, I wonder how many people remember that this piece of music was outlawed in all Nazi occupied territories? Dot dot dot dash is Morse code for the letter „V“ which had become the allies‘ symbol for victory over the Axis powers. every time something goes wrong i always go bum bum bummmm in for the begin @bonesdoc11 I HIGHLY doubt that. According to Hitler and Goebbels (Hitler’s second in command), the three master composers that represented good German music were Ludwig van Beethoven, Richard Wagner, and Anton Bruckner. He would never outlaw Beethoven as he was a „good and proper German composer.“ @smalin he was completly deaf he used the vibrations of the piano to make he cut of the legs of the piano to do this @Surtak Don’t doubt it, it’s true. Hitler’s two favorite composers were R. Wagner and F. Liszt, both virulent anti Semites. Thata nice, really nice, all those bars. @asdfg7325 He really wasn’t deaf yet here.
