Classical music visualized as a rollercoaster ride

(CBS) - We live in a really great technological era. Where someone can take a piece of classical music and decide that it needs to be visualized as a rollercoaster ride. And you know what? It's a pretty sweet ride.

The video was posted by Vimeo user virtual republic who writes about it:

Visualization of the 1st violin of the 2nd symphony, 4th movement by Ferdinand Ries in the shape of a rollercoaster. The camera starts by showing a close-up of the score, then focuses on the notes of the first violin turning the staves into the winding rail tracks of the rollercoaster. The notes and bars were exactly synchronised with the progression in the animation so that the typical movements of a rollercoaster ride match the dramatic composition of the music.
