Oskar Fishinger was a filmmaker and visual musician. While he was most known for his films, he was also a painter that can catch significant movement in a solitary frame. His filmmaking techniques making use of abstract visuals with musical accompaniment is what is celebrated in today's Google Doodle.
When the Doodle was first released, Leon Hong, Creative Lead on the Google Doodle, claimed: "Despite having the sophisticated technology that currently exists, emulating Fischinger's job is an impossible task. His colors and movement are so meticulously planned yet normally playful, his timing so precise yet human.
" So today's Doodle intends to pay homage to him while enabling you to compose your own visual songs. I hope it inspires you to choose the magic of Fischinger for yourself."
Users are welcomed to create their own visual songs with the Fischinger-inspired Google Doodle. The interactive Doodle opens up with a quote from Fischinger: "Songs is not limited to the globe of sound. There exists a music of the aesthetic world."
Make up a tune using four different "instruments" as well as see your songs change right into a visual, abstract, animated work of art.

Today's Doodle sees the initial O in words Google jumping in between 2 floor tiles, creating the adjacent G and also O to burst right into forms and music notes.
