Google gets musical to celebrate filmmaker Oskar Fischinger

California, June22:Google is marking what would be the 117th birthday of German-American artist Oskar Fischinger with an interactive new Doodle that lets users create their own audio-visual masterpieces in the abstract animator's distinctive style. Google has dedicated a musical google to mark the occasion. "There exists a music of the visual world". On the top you will find the option to change the instrument, and you have four options to choose from. Each dot represents a musical note that when combined form a musical composition that is played on a loop.

Hong adds, "I hope it inspires you to seek out the magic of Fischinger for yourself". He was known for carefully photographing each frame with his own hand. His impeccably-created stop-motion animations, synchronised to music, were a painstaking endeavour that he would obsess over for months or years.

He made over 50 short films, and painted around 800 canvases.

Fischinger's work to this day remains near-impossible to replicate, dancing the line between absolute precision and a human touch. It became one of Fischinger's most popular films. Soon he started experimenting with colored liquids and three-dimensional modelling materials such as wax and clay.

Three of Fischinger's films also made the 1984 Olympiad of Animation's list of the world's greatest films. Fischinger left Nazi Germany in 1936 for Hollywood as Adolf Hitler cracked down on abstract art. Most of the almost 50 film projects that Fischinger completed were made before WWII, and in his later years, he focused mostly on painting. Google worked in part with Fischinger's daughter, Angie, to bring the project to life.
