Oskar Fischinger's masterpiece Radio Dynamics (1942) was made intentionally silent, in fact a head title states explicitly: Please No Music Experiment in Color Rhythm

btw those in NY can see a new 35mm print of this film in our film series accompanying the Guggenheim's Kandinsky exhibition. Selected Fridays.
This film is also available on our Fischinger DVD.

Re: default silence versus intended silence Unless history shows
otherwise, I always assumed it was Brakhage. That is, having the option
of a synchronous soundtrack and deliberately not using it. Bunuel did it
in parts of L'age d'Or, and if we get into that there are probably
numerous examples.
