  2. A silent excerpt from one of the Lumigraph films made by Elfriede, of her performances on Oskar Fischinger's Lumigraph. From the collection of Center for Visual Music, a nonprofit archive. Oskar called his invention a "new Color-Play instrument...The instrument is played by HAND and produces the most fantastic color display - but controlled direct through the Player."

    There are no films of Oskar's 1950s performances, only Elfriede's, made later. One of the recordings she played to was Valse Triste. For more about Fischinger please visit the Fischinger Research site at centerforvisualmusic.org/Fischinger
