After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago my wife and I (Sean Ohlenkamp) decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto (883 Queen Street West)

Happy Easter to All from Cathy & Rob in Pixel Harbor.
by Jim Heather
We’ve seen other kinetic typography animations in the past, but none of them were as elaborate as this one and none of them were set to such a nice poppy happy tune: Jonathan Coulton’s Shop Vac.
But while the music and visuals are fun, the lyrics… not so much.
It was created with Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere and Toon Boom Animate in “somewhere between 500-1000 hours.” A labor of love, says its creator Jarrett Heather. Indeed.

You’ve heard the piece a hundred times, but you’ve never seen what your hands must do to make the sounds you heard. This is a moment to stop, relax, then listen & watch. (Turn up the volume)
Little Wing is a song written by Jimi Hendrix. He first recorded the song on the 1967 album Axis: Bold as Love. It is ranked #357 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, and has been covered by numerous artists, notably Derek and the Dominoes, Joe Satriani, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pearl Jam, Sting, John Mayer, The Corrs, Toto among many others.
“Little Wing” is played using the unique chord/melody guitar style that Hendrix developed during his early career stints in rhythm and blues bands. In this style, the guitar sounds as though it is playing two parts. This is done by simultaneously playing multiple complementary notes, often parts of chords, and then changing a note within the chord to create a melodic effect. Other songs played in this style include “Life Without You” by Stevie Ray Vaughan, “Catch The Rainbow” by Rainbow, “When A Blind Man Cries” by Deep Purple “The Boy From Seattle” by Steve Vai, “Yellow Ledbetter” by Pearl Jam, and “Under the Bridge” by Red Hot Chili Peppers. The unusual flanging sound of the lead guitar part is a result of the Doppler effect which is created using a rotating speaker cabinet, or Leslie speaker.
