Vi Hart and Henry Segerman: Peace for Triple Piano
Vi Hart and Henry Segerman have made an incredibly cool music video called Peace for Triple Piano. You can view it here, but note: you can (and should) grab the video and look around. Give it a listen and a whirl:
This video has Hart and Segerman performing all the parts of a round, but presenting it in a single, continuous video that you can observe. Not only that, but multiple versions of each person exist (and interact with objects like sheet music and a hammer).
When you’re done scratching your head wondering how they pulled this off, here’s the making-of video:
I was following along for the first few minutes, but after a bit… it just got super, super complicated. More than I could follow. Needless to say, Hart and Segerman are pretty awesome, and I love that they devoted this much time to figure everything out.
In particular, I like Hart’s description of this video as “a spirally triply meta chiral time crystal.”
