Colour Flight

New Zealand, 1938
4 minutes, Colour, Opt.

Music “Honolulu Blues” by Red Nicholas and his Five Pennies.
LEN LYE chose a tune in which he captures and translates the pulsation (rhythm) in a cocktail of colour. We are treated to an “eye nash”, which even today seems fresh (or which they don’t make like that anymore.)
