The Kid Should See This

Alexander Chen’s Viola through Glass

Google Creative Director Alexander Chen composes a song by filming some solo viola melodies on Google Glass and then weaving the video clips together in overlapping loops.

What results is not only a catchy musical piece, but a peek into the first-person visual perspective of the instrument player as things continue to happen in the room. It’s as if the music is being scored for that moment, as the dog and baby play in the background.
