I chose to show the complexity of a chess game through simple motion graphics. Fist having recording the data with my dear friend Marina, taking a photo directly above of every move then I complied it Photoshop to create a stop frame animation of the game. This would be used as a template to animate the individual square. White is colored with yellow and black with blue. Each capture of a piece is depicted with the color red.
Besides visualizing the movements, I decided to assign a musical note to each square. Since there’s 64 squares at 8×8, I thought it would perfect make each row an octave. I created my own sound in a synthesizer and edited the audio in Ableton live. Instead of hitting every note that each piece passed over (like I did with the visualization), I enabled A glide function hitting the first and last note in the sequence.
