Rodeo Hoedown

June 27, 2009 Leave a comment

Here’s a music video from Eleanor Stewart. (Hat tip: Sullivan.) She explains:

I created a music video for the Classical music work ‘Hoedown’ from the Rodeo Suite by Aaron Copland. It is a stop motion animation in which various characters, inspired by Cowboy and Western films, come to life from the musical score. It was made for my final year degree in Visual Communication at the Glasgow School of Art.

I used to play Rodeo for Joel when he was an infant. And Appalachian Spring. And tell him stories inspired by the music. I never thought to make a stop motion animation.
