A cut-paper animation demonstrating use of abstract geometrics to expressively represent an exhilarating drum solo by jazz great Chico Hamilton.

MUBI's take

Once again turning to the percussive rhythms of jazz drummer Chico Hamilton—who would go on to score Roman Polanski’s Repulsion—this animated experiment in cut paper mounts a series of psychedelic explosions. As a bonus, the last minute sees a young Henson at work, crafting the film in his studio.
