An Optical Poem, 1938


An abstract piece of stop-motion history, featuring abstract forms and dancing geometric shapes that pop, sway and dart across the screen, all in time to Franz Liszt’s 2nd Hungarian Rhapsody. A paper-made experiment, designed to replicate what goes on in the human psyche while listening to music.

An Optical Poem produced by Oskar Fischinger for MGM 1938, 7 minutes Music by Franz Liszt
