Kinetic typography: A wordless challenge

A friend of mine, Katie Harris, created a really nifty bit of video content that I wanted to share. Her assignment was to take an instrumental piece of music, make an onomatopoeic score for it, and animate the music with her score.

Since Katie’s assignment was for a typography class, her choice of font was just as crucial as how she made the animations. In this case, her font choices nicely reflect the styles of the jazz age, which is a great touch for a Benny Goodman song.

I thought her video was well done and wanted to share it – and as a clarinetist in my younger years I also quite appreciated her choice in music!
