I made this animation for the motion design class to explore the relationship between motion and type. The assignment was to select a meaningful quote and animate the letterforms in a way that enhances that meaning. My animation illustrates the value of music by creating disharmony and unease when "music" is removed from the screen. The typography takes on the form and function of a piano where the characters are the keys. When the word "music" fades away, the piano cannot play the correct melody because the necessary notes are missing.
