This entertaining short 'music video' from the 1960s combines animated electronic components of the period and a catchy musical soundtrack that will be familiar to fans of a popular animated TV sitcom.
If you're into electronics or are a fan of the animated show Futurama, you're sure to enjoy this short (02:47) film from the 1960s. The soundtrack is the song "Psyche Rock," originally recorded in 1964 by French composer Pierre Henry and later used as the basis for the Futurama theme song.
Henry is considered a pioneer of a form of electronic music known as musique concrète, which relies on natural sounds played back or "abstracted" - via manipulation of the recording tape and tape loops - into a musical context. Talk about "futurama" - this technique appears to be a precursor to the sampling techniques used virtually everywhere today.
