In this animated short, filmmaker Chris Hinton and composer Michael Oesterle leap back and forth between picture and sound. The dynamic movement of Hinton's visual art dances in syncopation with the bold musical strokes of an original modern classical composition. Without words.

    Very interesting to see how music sounds! If you couldn't hear, this would let you enjoy music. And maybe now when I listen to music I will see shapes and colours in my mind.
