MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2006

1/2
New York, New York: and Film Society of Lincoln Center
http://www.centerforvisualmusic.org
5 and 9 pm, Walter Reade Theatre, Lincoln Center, 165 W. 65th Street

 OSKAR FISCHINGER: OPTICAL ETUDES
  Film Society of Lincoln Center in association with Center for Visual
  Music present Oskar Fischinger: Optical Etudes. A retrospective of his
  films, featuring many preserved 35mm prints of Fischinger's classic
  Visual Music films. January 2, 2006, 5:00 and 9:00 (program screens
  twice, separate admissions) .Tickets on sale online through
  www.filmlinc.com and at the box office. The program samples glimpses of
  Fischinger's earliest silent endeavors before plunging headlong into his
  unmistakable universe of vibratory parallel lines, comet-like spheroids
  and pulsating concentric circles, favorite primal forms deployed in
  one-to-one matchups with pieces by Brahms (1931's Study No. 7), Wagner
  and Grieg (1933's Kreise), Mozart (1935's Muratti Privat cigarette ad),
  John Phillip Sousa (1941's American March), and Johann Sebastian Bach
  (1947's Motion Painting No. 1).Fischinger's technique, equally adept
  at interpreting then-contemporaneous pop music, testifies to the
  powerful effects that can be wrought through pure abstraction.
  Biographer William Moritz wrote, "Oskar Fischinger is one of the
  greatest artists of the 20th century, embracing the abstraction that
  became the major art movement of that century, and exploring the new
  technology of the cinema to open abstract painting into a new Visual
  Music that performs in liquid time." (Greg Ford)
  Program also includes:An Optical Poem, Allegretto (2 versions), Radio
  Dynamics, Composition in Blue, Study No. 5 and 6, Spiritual
  Constructions, R-1 Ein Formspiel and more, with many new prints struck
  especially for this show. Program provided by Center for Visual Music.
  Technicolor print of An Optical Poem provided thanks to Warner Brothers.
  Prints preserved by the Academy Film Archive, CVM and Fischinger
  Archive, with the support of Film Foundation, Sony, Deutsches Filmmuseum
  and Cinematheque Quebecoise. For further information,

  Claire Fowler was born in the UK in 1979, and studied Fine Art at Oxford
  University and the Royal College of Art in London. Her films explore the
  relationship one has with the world through symbolic representations,
  and the universality of narrative and the poetic. Claire has shown her
  work around the UK and Germany, and is now bringing it to the US. She
  also curates film screenings in the UK, writes for Filmwaves magazine,
