This is an abstract film in which every motion is in strict synchronization with music, so the description must be read in terms of the overall impression it gives. Within a deep blue environment, one red cube slowly drifts on a reflecting floor. Suddenly there are multiple red cubes drifting and dancing in various formations. Over the course of the film the angularity of square shapes are transformed into circular and cylindrical shapes. The climax of the film features a multitude of these shapes in Busby Berkeley-like formation, as various circular figures grow and disappear among a simulated sky, with the blue colors giving way to red.

Fischinger created the images and movement to correspond with the music. This technique of working from the music to the image is called "mickeymousing". See more
