How to create a music visualization video ?


Music visualizations are great for making your music alive. Wikipedia defines “music visualization” as a "feature found in electronic music visualizers and media player software, which generates animated imagery based on a piece of music. The imagery is usually generated and rendered in real time and in a way synchronized with the music as it is played."

The first electronic music visualizer was the Atari Video Music , back in 1976, made by  Robert Brown. He meant to create a visualization for a  Hi-Fi stereo system. It was a long time ago, but music visualization is still trendy.

Let us explain why music visualization is so cool. Simply, because people like visual content better, than any type of content. Music visualization allows you to see what you hear. It is also a powerful and pleasing way to connect with your audience.
