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.

In the Track Index and Special Features section, an early version of "Pogo Sticks" -- later used in Animusic 2 -- is the background music for "Future Retro"'s Stage Construction feature. See more »


Wayne Lytle: [during Harmonic Voltage commentary] These bass emitters are plasma-filled. Or maybe they're filled with some kind of radioactive grape juice or something - I'm not sure. But anyway, they visualize the taurus bass pedals part.

Very Clever, But Very Short
31 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is very different.....instrumental music with a "computer" band. It's almost too difficult to explain, because this is so different than most things you might have ever watched. The instruments play themselves as if they were alive. Sometimes you see objects, like small balls, flying around hitting drums or keyboards to produce the notes.

It's very colorful and the music is decent. My favorite scenes were "Pipe Dreams" mainly because of the clever visuals; "Acoustic curves" because of the music. On the negative side, I thought there was too much emphasis on drums which made some spots become a bit tedious. My real complaint was that I rented this after reading reviews of it elsewhere. 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.
