Tusalava, Len Lye, 1929

Tusalava was originally performed with live accompaniment composed by Jack Ellit. Unfortunately, the original score was lost. Many people have stepped in to fill that void, and I can think of several others who would do an amazing job. In my mind, I am looking at them pointedly right now, in a "You. Do this thing at the Trylon" kind of way.

I do think that Youtube user pukunu1 did a mighty decent job here.


  1. In fact it would be the poerfect excuse
    to use a Dewan brothers instrument.

  2. YES. Poerfect indeed!

    We have to do this. It must happen.
