If you have not seen the Animusic web site or listened to their productions, I recommend you do so. I have enjoyed the Animusic 1 DVD and now Animusic 2 DVD is about ready for distribution.

You can listen and watch samples on the web at their site.

The New DVD is Almost Ready...

Dear Friends of Animusic,

We’re excited to announce that the production on Animusic 2 has wrapped! We’ve moved on to the manufacturing stage. It looks like we’ll be able to ship DVDs sometime in November, in plenty of time for those buying the DVD for holiday gifts.

The production team packed so much onto this DVD (it’s a dual-layer DVD that’s 99.6% full), and sweated so much over the final audio mixes that we ended up going over the schedule by about two weeks. We really apologize to everyone who’s been anxiously awaiting its arrival. We’re sure it will be worth the wait!

In the meantime, check out some new preview video clips on the web site, hope you enjoy those!

And here are answers to a few common questions:

Q: When can I order Animusic 2?
A: We expect to have DVDs in inventory sometime mid-November. As soon as we are given an arrival date we will update the web site and begin taking orders.

Q: How much will Animusic 2 cost?
A: The Animusic 2 DVD will sell for $19.95.

Q: Will there be a discount if I buy Animusic 1 and 2 together?
A: Yes, those two together will initially sell for $34.95.

Q: Can I get Animusic 2 from a retail store?
A: The initial availability will mainly be on the Internet. In 2006 we will begin the process of rolling it out for retail.

Q: Will there be an audio CD of Animusic 2?
A: Yes, that’s the plan. But as with Animusic 1, the priority was on the DVD. Production on the Soundtrack CD has not yet begun.

Q: Will there be a VHS of Animusic 2?
A: Although our plan was to release only DVDs starting with Animusic 2, we will consider a VHS version if there seems to be enough demand. We appreciate your patience and support very much.

Best Regards,
The Animusic team

What is Animusic?

Animusic is computer animated music – It's unique, captivating, and not that infrequently causes 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 (or VHS). Our first release features 7 distinct music animations. You could say it's like a record album where you get to see the music.

The animations are created with computers utilizing a process similar to that of movies like Shrek and Finding Nemo (although we add our own "secret sauce" that allows musical instruments to magically animate themselves).

Each animation features inventive instruments playing music in different settings. Although people sometimes think they are viewing actual instruments (a testament to the detail work and care put into each piece) alas, it's all digital and can only be seen on a screen.

Animusic isn't targeted to any particular age group or gender, and it's great to see that so many different types of people enjoy watching the animations; teens, toddlers, grandparents, engineers, musicians, animation fans . . . it appeals to a very broad spectrum.

That's a quick introduction. We invite you to explore our site and learn all the details . . . simply use the navigation buttons to the left, or follow any yellow text links (may we suggest
