Geometry of Circles

Amazing Geometry of Circles animation, with soundtrack by Philip Glass from Sesame Street, 1979. I'm not sure why the picture quality gets crummy after the second half, so for more, be sure to conduct your own search of GoC on Youtube. The following information is snipped from Muppetwiki:

"Geometry of Circles" is a series of unnumbered animation pieces created for Sesame Street in 1979 with music by Philip Glass.

The shorts consist of the movement of six circles (each with a different color of the rainbow) that are formed by and split up into various geometric patterns. Glass's music underscores the animation in a style that closely resembles the "Dance" numbers and the North Star vignettes written during the same time period as his Einstein on the Beach opera.
