Constellation is a visually illuminating short paying tribute to Classical pianist Janina Fialkowska, upon receiving her Lifetime Achieverment Award at the 2012 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards. Director / animator Patrick Doan displays a star-studded cast of dancing dots, as they whip and rip through the empty space around them.

A combinational amalgam of Shervin Shaeri‘s Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog and Fialkowska’s interpretation of Frédéric Chopin‘s Etude No.12 in C minor, Opus 10 encompass the short from start to finish, as words of wisdom enlighten us about the search for beauty between the notes.

Check out it all out in the video embedded down below, and get inspired. Classical music will never die!
