Inbetweens: Marc Andre Hamelin’s Circus Gallop

Circus Poster

This piano piece is impossible for human hands to play. (At some points there are 21 keys pressed at one time!) It was composed for player piano, however it even pegs the mechanical capabilities of them! Anyone care to animate to this piece? You’d better animate at a high frame rate and do everything on ones!

Albert Hurter was one of the premiere artists for the Disney Studio in its peak years. In 1948, Ted Sears published a sketchbook of his work, “He Drew As He Pleased”, a treasure trove of Hurter’s masterful work.

The book itself has been out of print for decades, but it has been posted in its entirety online, courtesy of Micheal Sporn’s Splog.
