Rhythm 94

Austria, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Renoldner Thomas

A Muybridge-styled character walks across the screen left to right in time to a sound tone. As the pitch of the tone and its frequency changes, so does the shape and permutations of the char­acter. A lyrical minimalist computer animation unfolds which is a homage to Hans Richter's early abstract animated films of the twenties, Rhythmus 21 and Rhythmus 23.
