A student film by Jim Spencer, Pasadena City College. To the music of "The moog and me", played on a moog synthesizer, the filmartist has taken developed black raw stock and used different acids to eat through the various layers of color to create both his patterns and his colors, while at the same time carefully synchronizing his images to the music, through the use of both moviola and oscilloscope equipment. The result is a spritely abstract film reminiscent of the work of Norman McLaren and the best film of this kind since BEGONE DULL CARE.
