Smalin’s YouTube channel offers music with a graphical score, such as the sample seen on the right.

Making of the graphical score: Made the arrangements to use licensed audio, found a MIDI file, imported into notation for program Sibelius, compared to a printed copy, fixed errors, compared to score, modified score to match orchestra, exported to MIDI, ran custom frame-rendering software, made “reduction” of score, colored it to taste, decided not to use the notation, put rendered frames, audio, and titles in Adobe Premiere, exported movie to QuickTime, converted with On2 Flix, generated Flash to prevent YouTube’s conversion changes, uploaded.
