Len Lye’s last film was a visual accompaniment to Tal Farlow’s 1954 bebop track “Rock n Rye”. White lines on black film recall the strings of Farlow’s guitar. This is a deceptively simple piece where the synchronisation was critical, and the animation was timed to the split second. Tal Farlow was finished by an assistant upon Lye’s death.
