A Colorful Symphony was a piece by Robert Rodriguez. The music is based on a chapter in The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster which depicts an orchestra that plays all the colors of the world. The music piece is a wonderful introduction for children into the world of orchestral music. The visuals tie in closely with the different instrument groups so kids can see the musical sections light up as the musicians play. A section of this project was heavily inspired by the Redwood forests of Northern California. As the orchestra played, the visualization illuminated the forest floor and splashed color throughout the various scenes.
