English description from back cover:
"This album offers an unusual opportunity to discover the "sound dimensions" of the National Film Board of Canada. This is not, however, a matter of "film music" or "theme songs". The sound tracks to be found here, detached from their visuals, taken in their totality, assume the character of parallel, autonomous works.
We wished to draw attention to the fact that the NFB has produced sound tracks in which a true spirit of research has been able to express itself with great freedom.
This album shows that Norman McLaren is not only an animation artist of repute, but that he is also an imaginative musician and inventor of sound put directly on film, using animation techniques, either manually or by photography.
We wished also to pay homage to NFB composers - authentic film-makers - craftsmen essential to the achievement of a film.
Thus we find those "musician film-makers" of the Board - Maurice Blackburn, Eldon Rathburn and Alain Clavier - as well as some others who have been interested in the relation of sound to image.
Produced by the Sound Concept Studio of the National Film Board of Canada, these discs cover the period 1952-1971, the period preceding the establishment of the studio in 1971 when electro-acoustic technology was made available to the Board's composers."
