Oskar Fischinger is the father of Visual Music. “Decades before computer graphics, before music videos, even before Fantasia (the 1940 version), there were the abstract animated films of Oskar Fischinger (1900-1967), master of ‘absolute’ or nonobjective filmmaking . . . who created exquisite ‘visual music’ using geometric patterns and shapes choreographed tightly to classical music and jazz.” —John Canemaker, New York Times
