Norman McLaren's SYNCHROMY (1971)

"Here are pyrotechnics of the keyboard, but with only a camera to 'play the tune'. To make this film, Norman McLaren employed novel optical techniques to compose the piano rhythms of the sound track. These he then moved, in multicolor, onto the picture area of the screen so that, in effect, you see what you hear. It is synchronization of image and sound in the truest sense of the word."

(National Film Board of Canada)

Jazzimation: visual abstraction gracefully animated to music

"A jazzy film in which the spectator is forced to look with the ears and listen with the eyes. An abstract film drawn directly on the computer.

Een jazzy film waarbij de toeschouwer gedwongen wordt met oren te kijken en ogen te luisteren. Een abstracte film die de muziek verbeeldt."
