Watch Jim Henson’s Experimental Animation “Drums West” From 1961

Came across this amazing animation by Jim Henson that he made back in 1961 using cut-paper. It was created in his home studio in Bethesda, MD and was one of several experiment shorts inspired by jazz musician Chico Hamilton. I love the build-up of energy that he was able to capture and how he was able to visualize the sounds so perfectly.
