The music animation machine

I saw this “what a queer bird the frog are” video on videosift this morning:

and I loved the juxtaposition of the sort of instructional music that I remember from primary school with low-resolution bitmap imagery (something else I remember from when I was a child).

I found that the video was generated by the Music Animation Machine. The homepage includes a basic history of the machine as well as a list of available videos online (or on DVD). It’s a beautiful thing.

Unfortunately Eric Satie is only available on DVD. 🙁
