‘Geometry of Circles’

While I’m in Portland I’m staying with Frank Chimero, designer extraordinaire, and he suggested that I should do some video posts relating to shapes, so be ready for the shape smorgasbord. First up is the 1979 Sesame Street video Geometry of Circles which features the music of Philip Glass. It’s amazing that way back in the day kids were able to see a short feature like this instead of the mindless crap of todays cartoon experiences. Couple that with the fact that it’s Philip freaking Glass composing the score to it, which is so next level. Sit back and enjoy.

    I love circles. As much as I try to be “normal” things like this break me down into a geometry loving maniac.

    Also, after buying a good amount of his soundtracks I’ve come to realize everything Phily Glass makes sounds nearly identical.
