Piano Phase by Steve Reich, Visualized

I recently stumbled upon a very cool visualization of the piece Piano Phase by Steve Reich. If you haven’t heard of the piece, it consists of a pianist playing a twelve note sequence, who is later joined by another pianist who plays the same sequence. The second pianist then begins to speed up ever so slightly, fading in and out of phase with the original pianist as the piece progresses. Check it out.
