Each of the 48 dots is moving in a circle. In three minutes, the largest dot will travel around the circle once, the next largest dot will travel around the circle twice, the next largest dot three times, and so on. The dots are arranged to trigger notes on a chromatic scale when they pass the line.
This is a musical realization of the motion graphics in John Whitney’s book “Digital Harmony”. Animation and music by Jim Bumgardner Special thanks to him
