Move over MIDI unicorn, there’s a new cat in town and he sounds better

MIDI art cat

We have a new holder of the best image-based MIDI sequence crown (bet you didn’t think such a thing existed) and we have Andrew Huang to thank.

The YouTube star set up the competition #AndrewMidiArtContest (opens in new tab) to scour the web for the best piano-roll art and a winner has been announced.

Instagrammer jacobsutherlandmusic (opens in new tab) was picked for his elegant portrait of a cat that sounds as good as it looks to scoop a 49" UltraWide LG monitor as the winning prize.

Some other entrants that came close (in our opinion) include a dead cockroach (opens in new tab), great white shark (opens in new tab), Chinese dragon (opens in new tab) and wolf howling at the moon (opens in new tab). You can see all the entries on Instagram (opens in new tab).

This is not the first time that we’ve seen Andrew Huang get involved with MIDI art in his DAW, with the fabled unicorn taking the internet by storm.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
