animusic

I just saw this very coolest thing on tv, a music animation from http://www.animusic.com. It's an instrument that looks like six different stringed instruments fell into a vat and melted together, got yanked out and set in a beautiful room that looks like something out of Myst. Wooden robotic fingers press the strings against the frets and more fingers pluck the strings.

The completeness of the room and the light/shadows were so realistic, it took some good long stares before I could say for certain that it was an animation and not some creation designed by the love child of Rube Goldberg and John McLaughlin.
The piece is called "Resonant Chamber" and is on the Animusic 2 DVD.
