For the initiated setting, where the conic helix stands, it is based on procedural maps of type noise.

Prior to research, I did not know this, regarding the fish, but I cannot deny my ignorance in such matters.

A video similar to the one that I here propose could be suitable for children with the aim to explain in a playful manner how a musical track works.

A very short sequence of 2D animation. Awfully tiresome procedure and probably not practical in a productive context.
