Synchromie, Norman McLaren, 1971

Made with an optical printer, this film utilized McLaren's technique of rendering the sound directly onto the film.

  1. Watching the film with today's eyes, it's hard not to get it in your head how the sounds produced themselves resemble something out of an Atari 2600 video game which would become apparent by the end of the decade this film was made in. Still quite terrific and impressive for it's time before analog synthesizers and other technological advancements would follow.
