Line Riders ride to Beethoven’s 5th

Three Line Riders sled, skid, and sail across a choreography of lines. Written between 1804 and 1808, the accompanying music is from the first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s ‘5th symphony’. It’s “one of the best-known compositions in classical music, and one of the most frequently played symphonies.” YouTuber DoodleChaos drew, synchronized, and tested the course for more than three months.

There is no animation happening here. Any time a character leaves the screen they are being directed by unseen lines to the next location.

This is not the full length of the piece. I spliced together parts to make it possible for me to finish the project in a practical amount of time.

In case you missed it: Dance of the Line Riders and Mountain King, and Marbles & Magnets synchronized to Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers.

Thanks, Jonah.
