Rondo
BY
Peter Blomberg & Erik Rathie & Bodil Johansson

Rondo may be perceived as an improvised stylistic exercise set to music. It was made with a statically fixed camera. Bright colors run together on a rotating disc. New layers of colors emerge and disappear according to chance. Patterns are formed and are followed by new shapes to the sound of the music from the loudspeakers.
