Great Emotions: A Thrilling Musical Roller Coaster

This wonderful visualization takes the sheet music from a symphony by German composer Ferdinand Ries and turns it into a thrilling theme park ride.

Keeping in tune with the first violin of symphony No. 2, 4th movement by Ries, the musical roller coaster starts slowly, reaches its zenith, and then plummets into a whirlwind of turns, rises, and dips. Check it out below.

The visualization was created by German animation studio Virtual Republic.
