Eye of Sound: What you see is what you hear. In this 1971 masterpiece, McLaren achieved what much of the audiovisual art world has been trying for decades: a perfect symbiosis of image and sound. McLaren, who had been making experiments in electronic music for a long time by painting soundtracks directly on the film, made a radical move with Synchromy: colored pattern cards representing the optical composition were placed both on the sound and picture areas of the film, so that the spectator literally visualizes music or musicalizes vision. If there ever was one single Sound of Eye, this is it.
