ANIMUSIC is a computer animation company with the singular focus of animating music.


ANIMUSIC is an independent entertainment company specializing in the production of DVD “video albums”.

Animusic’s videos are unique, captivating, and often cause jaws to drop.


You’ll experience Animusic as individual animations that are typically about 4 to 5 minutes long. They’re collected together to form a “visual album”, and sold as a DVD.


ANIMUSIC is a computer animation company with the singular focus of animating music.

Both music and visuals are entirely digitally synthesized. We “invent” imaginary Virtual Instruments by building computer graphics models of objects that appear to create the sound of the corresponding synthesized music track.

Animusic is an American company specializing in the 3D visualization of MIDI-based music. Founded by Wayne Lytle, it is incorporated in New York and has offices in Texas and California. The initial name of the company was Visual Music, changed to Animusic in 1995.

The company is known for its Animusic compilations of computer-generated animations, based on MIDI events processed to simultaneously drive the music and on-screen action, leading to and corresponding to every sound.

Unlike many other music visualizations, the music drives the animation. While other productions might animate figures or characters to the music, the animated models in Animusic are created first, and are then programmed to follow what the music “tells them” to. ‘Solo cams’ featured on the Animusic DVD shows how each instrument actually plays through a piece of music from beginning to end. Many of the instruments appear to be robotic or play themselves using curious methods to produce and visualize the original compositions. The animations typically feature dramatically-lit rooms or landscapes.


The music of Animusic is principally pop-rock based, consisting of straightforward sequences of triggered samples and digital patches mostly played “dry”; i.e., with few effects. There are no lyrics or voices, save for the occasional chorus synthesizer. According to the director’s comments on Animusic 2, most instrument sounds are generated with software synthesizers on a music workstation (see Software Programs for more info). Many sounds resemble stock patches available on digital keyboards, subjected to some manipulation, such as pitch or playback speed, to enhance the appeal of their timbre.
