German filmmaker Oskar Fischinger pioneered abstract musical animations and created dynamic new possibilities for cinema. With one of his more notable projects being his work on Walt Disney's 'Fantasia', Fischinger used experimental techniques in an attempt to push aside narrative and instead focus on the scale, motion, rhythm and colour of cinema. Reconstructing his performances from around 1926, this installation at Tate Modern sees the films transferred to HD and digitally restored with added colour.

 

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
