'Constellation' by Patrick Doan

I wonder what Walt Disney would've thought of this video if he could have seen into the future some 70 years after Fantasia. If he saw animation as the highest artform I think he certainly would have been happy to know that it is still being used to express great performances in music. I'm sure he would've been utterly amazed at the mind boggling idea that computers were used to produce the animation instead of hand painted cels.

Directed and animated by Patrick Doan, "Constellation" features "Etude No.12 in C minor, Opus 10" (Révolutionnaire) by Frédéric Chopin as interpreted by Janina Fialkowska, recipient of the Canadian 2012 Governor General's Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award. Sound design is by Shervin Shaeri.
