Where do you feel the Rhythm?

For my design class, we have to make an abstract representation of a song, showing understanding of the golden mean as well as visual rhythm, using only 2 or 3 colors.

I'm trying to decide between several songs, I'm guessing it'll be either "Rhapsody in Blue" by George Gerschwin, or "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. (2 great Rhapsodies if there ever were)

Tracie suggested I watch the iTunes visualizer for ideas, which has been a great suggestion, and here's one from Bohemian Rhapsody.


If you had to draw a song, what song would it be?

What is the "golden mean"?

the golden ratio, golden rectangle. A shape in geometry that takes place in nature, like in a nautilus shell or in the fibonacci sequence.

"Somewhere In Time" from the movie, I picture in my mind the outline of the horizon, beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

"I can't wait to see you again" By Miley Cyrus.... I know your too ashamed to admit that that is what you really want to do, but just do it. We won't judge you.

I would head towards one of two extremes...classical (Piano concerto 2 by Rachmoniov)...or totally modern and cool, like that "Bleeding Love" song by Leona Lewis or "Mercy" by Duffy.
