'In 1954, while working for the Kinesis distribution organization in San Francisco, Chistopher Maclaine was introduced to a San Diego newspaperwoman, Ettilie Wallace, who had produced an abstract motion picture utilizing images created by her "kaleidolight" box, an affair composed of coloured lights and revolving plastic forms. Miss Wallace was looking for a composer to add a music track to her film, and Maclaine offered his services, composing a score for drum, flute, and human voice. The completed film was entitled Moods in Motion.' - Robert Pike
