Animated to the rhythms of the fifth "Gnossienne" by Erik Satie. The moon and moonlight are the guiding lights of this visual interpretation and Lawrence Jordan kept the backgrounds in soft greens and blues accordingly. Only the cosmic tumbler, whose enigma is emphasized by his red color, breaks this pattern. Satie's music simplified and refined the imagery, made it the celestial circus of which Jordan had always dreamed. MOONLIGHT SONATA begins a new phase in his animation. He was finally getting in touch with the possibility of real poetry. All works of art seem to come ready-made with their own sets of rules and, in this film, only very simple movements were permitted.
