Le Ballet Mécanique (1924, Fernand Leger)
"Le Ballet Mecanique" demonstrates Legers preoccupation with the new technology of the moving image invented by Thomas Edison.
Léger’s groundbreaking film “Ballet Mécanique,” which was completed with the help of American filmmaker Dudley Murphy, artist Man Ray, and experimental composer George Antheil (the score included 16 mechanized pianos, an airplane propeller, and sirens). The fractured imagery and percussive instrumentation of the film once again evokes the experience of the modern metropolis.
