Claude Debussy Google Logo - click for full size

Today on the home page of Google worldwide is a special musical Google logo for Claude Debussy on his 151st birthday.

The logo appears like a movie but has little actual interaction. You click play and it takes you through a settings of the set of Clair de Lune, one of Claude Debussy most notable works. You go through a view of streetlights and house lights flickering on and off all while cars and boats ride by. This is covered by the music, Clair de Lune, which translates to moonlight. It is the third movement of Suite bergamasque by Claude Debussy, a piano depiction of a Paul Verlaine poem.

Here is the audio file (HTML 5 browser required):

Claude Debussy was born on August 22, 1862 inSaint-Germain-en-Laye, France and died March 25, 1918 in Paris, France from rectal cancer. He was only 55 years old.

To learn more about his life and contributions to this world, see his Wikipedia page.

Whenever I see a new Google logo I tend to say ahhh...that's cute. But this time I was blown away. I was completely mesmerized by the animated logo and I just want to give credit to those who designed it. Well done, a job well done!!!
