In this three-part experiment in geometric abstraction, spheres with metallic reflections float and are propelled through space. René Jodoin and Norman McLaren completed the animation in 1946, but it wasn’t until 1968 that McLaren chose Glenn Gould’s interpretation of passages from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier for the soundtrack.
