Music Animation Machine DVD #2

The biggest hurdle in all of this is writing a new version of the Music Animation Machine software that will let me synchronize MIDI data to existing audio recordings; this is required for the Telemann selection, the Bach cantata movement, the guitar music, and Tenney's Wake (if I decided to use a live recording).

The second biggest job is inventing the animation to go with James Edwards' recordings; guitar music is a special world, and I'd like to reflect that in the visualization.
