Visual Music

The Google doodle from last Thursday, June 22nd, was a true work of art. I played with it for about a half hour when it came out. And I was reminded of it again today.

It was an homage to Oskar Fischinger for his 117th Birthday. Leon Hong, the Googler behind the Doodle, had this to say about it:

Even with the advanced technology that now exists, emulating Fischinger's work is an impossible task. His colors and motion are so carefully planned yet naturally playful, his timing so precise yet human. So today's Doodle aims to pay homage to him, while allowing you to compose your own visual music. I hope it inspires you to seek out the magic of Fischinger for yourself.

Check it out if you didn't then!
