Animusic draws you into its reality like no place you have ever been. You encounter new dimensions of sight and sound as you experience seven unique visual concerts. From the robotic laser-precision of Future Retro and rapid-fire ball bearings of Pipe Dream to the serene acoustic beauty of Aqua Harp, each animation is an intricate melding of music and visuals.

All of the on-screen animation is driven by MIDI-based controls. Instead of the animation being changed to match the music, the actual code of the MIDI data tells the instruments how to play. See more »

As with all of our environments, there's an extent to which this approximates some reality and another extent to which it violates physics in our universe.

And even if it didn't, it certainly would be difficult to move the large gears as fast and as suddenly as is being done here. But, in ...

Included was the fact this was 75 minutes long. In truth, it is only 33 minutes! IMDb has it right. Had I known that, I probably would have selected something else.
There is a short bonus feature: Beyond the Walls, in 3-D, but we don't get 3-D glasses so it isn't a big deal to watch,...but would have been.
